Atlas of Robotic Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery
Deep knowledge of anatomy and surgical technique will continue to remain the foundation of surgery despite advancement in surgical technology. Robotic surgery usage has increased drastically in the last decade. More than ever before, surgical community in great need for an updated atlas in the various upper GI surgical procedures and techniques available.
This atlas demonstrates how to perform the most common Upper GI robotic procedure via a set of high-quality state-of-the-art annotated images showing step-by-step guidance providing pertinent and concise procedure descriptions spanning benign and malignant upper GI problems. Robotic upper GI procedures are considered technically demanding with attention to details thus are considered great teaching procedures especially with dual robotic consoles, simulation, and teleproctoring.
Preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative figures are integrated to highlight the importance of these step-by-step procedures, enhance skill and efficiency, and avoid surgical pitfalls. Detailed descriptive figures accompany step-by-step instructions and include specific anatomical annotations that describe the anatomy during upper GI procedures.
Atlas of Robotic Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery will provide a comprehensive, insightful and state-of-art review of this field, and will serve as a valuable visual resource for surgeons, surgeons in training, and students with an interest in robotic upper GI surgery.
All chapters are written by an international group of experts in their field, to provide a comprehensive atlas for specialists and trainees, this illustrated book will give a current and concise summary of all key topics and recent developments in upper GI surgery.
