Abstract

Robotic surgery has increased for the treatment of gastric adenocarcinoma. Although conventional laparoscopic surgery showed feasibility and safety in this field, difficulties in lymphadenectomy remain and hamper the prevalent use of the minimally invasive technique for the treatment of gastric cancer. The state-of-the-art techniques by using robot system enable surgeons to deliver more delicate and refined dissection and tissue manipulation during gastric cancer surgery. In this chapter, we encapsulate the indication, operative technique, operative outcomes, and issues regarding robotic surgery for the treatment of gastric cancer.
