Abstract

Goals for setup in the operating room should focus on preparation, visibility, operative strategy, and easy access to instrumentation. The importance of ergonomics cannot be overimpressed as repetitive use injury and musculoskeletal strain certainly are underreported and underappreciated in the surgical community. Setup considerations begin far before the day of operation. Choices in the OR for laparoscopic colectomy should be developed for maximal efficiency while minimizing excessive cost; however, safety or operative objectives should never be sacrificed.
