    Abstract

    The introduction of robotic surgical systems has produced a significant technological advance in minimally invasive surgery. The application of robotics to rectal cancer surgery is being spotlighted as the means to eliminate many of the technical difficulties inherent in conventional laparoscopic surgery. However, standardization of surgical technique has not yet been established. We have developed a single-stage totally robotic low anterior resection for rectal cancer, and describe here our surgical technique.
