Recent advances in technology and instrumentation, mean that robot-assisted surgery has become increasingly established as an alternative to traditional open surgeries.
This book is a practical guide to robotic surgery, beginning with an overview of the techniques and anaesthesia, highlighting the vital role played by anaesthetists in early patient recovery.
The following sections cover all major surgical subspecialties including, general surgery, thoracic and vascular, gynaecological, urogynaecological, and paediatric and adult urology.
The text is highly illustrated with clinical images and tables, and is further enhanced by an interactive DVD ROM demonstrating robotic surgical procedures including sleeve gastrectomy, rectopexy, hysterectomy, hernia repair, and much more.
