Abstract

Robotic technology is increasingly used in colorectal surgery during last decade. Whether this technology will translate into clinical efficiency and value of care remains to be determined. This review aims to discuss current data in robotic rectal surgery with emphasize on ergonomics, cost, and learning curve aspects. All relevant articles are reviewed in addition to published and unpublished work from the authorsown experience.
