Role of robotic surgery in laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy

Keun Won Ryu, Woo Jin Hyung, Nobuhiko Tanigawa, Sang Woong Lee

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The robotic surgery system was introduced to overcome the demerits of laparoscopic surgery [1, 2]. The early impact of robotic surgery was that it may make it possible to perform complex procedures by minimally invasive surgery, such as surgery for prostate cancer and mitral valve surgery [3–6].sss
