Robotic Segmentectomies

Posted On 2021-04-12 17:04:07

In this series, we have studied on the robotic thoracic surgery, which is a close neighbor to VATS. Especially, we have focused on the robotic segmentectomy operations. We have discussed the role of segmentectomy operations, surgical techniques, experiences in benign diseases, mediastinal lymph node dissections as well as more recently developed imaging techniques.

Word renown surgeons participated in the development of Robotic segmentectomy operations, contributed to this series. I hope this series of VATS journal becomes a useful source for those interested in robotic segmentectomies.
