Right Hemicolectomy and Ileocecectomy: Single-Port Robotic Approach
Single-incision robotic surgery is utilized in many procedures including but not limited to colectomies, prostatectomies, cholecystectomies, and hysterectomies. The greatest advantage of single-incision robotic surgery compared to laparoscopic is ergonomic superiority and return of triangulation via the cross-arm technique on the da Vinci robot, enhanced three-dimensional acuity, camera stability, and better assistant positioning. Disadvantages such as increased operative and docking time and cost of robot utilization may be offset by more experience and decreased length of stay, respectively. Further studies with larger sample size and cost-benefit analysis will help guide the future of robotic surgery.
