The recent introduction of robotic surgical system has revolutionized the field of minimally invasive surgery. The investigators hypothesized that adoption of a robotic surgical system for patients with right-side colon cancer seems appealing because This system provides high-definition three-dimensional vision, eliminates physiologic tremor, and better ergonomics. This randomized controlled trial was designed to determine the safety and efficacy of robotic right hemicolectomy in comparison with laparoscopic right hemicolectomy.

The operation used for treating cancer in this location of the colon is called right hemicolectomy. Currently the investigators have two methods of minimal access approach to the abdominal...
In this study, the investigators have compared the clinical outcomes of the laparoscopic and open right hemicolectomy within enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) programs in the treatmen...
The main goal of this study is to clarify if Robotic-assisted surgery could become the standard approach in patients undergoing left colonic resection. Patient candidates to left colonic ...
The indication of laparoscopic surgery is mainly for early regional type hepatolithiasis. Open surgery is the traditional treatment method for heptolithiasis. Da Vinci surgical robot can o...
The primary objective of this study is to compare 30-day complication rates associated with promontofixation for pelvic organ prolapse performed via a robot-assisted laparoscopic technique...
Here, we describe our experience of laparoscopic surgery in a colon cancer patient with an ileal conduit. To our knowledge, this is the second case presented in the English-language literature. A 71-y...
Complete mesocolic excision (CME) has been proposed for colon cancer to improve oncological outcomes. The risks and benefits of laparoscopic CME have not been examined fully. We compared short- and lo...
Radioguided surgery has been widely used for clinical procedures such as sentinel node resections. In the (robot-assisted) laparoscopic setting radioguidance is realized using laparoscopic gamma probe...
Surgical resection with curative intent remains the standard of care for colon cancer. This study aims to compare the 30-day outcomes and oncologic results following open, laparoscopic, and robot-assi...
Laparoscopic surgery for T4 colon cancer remains controversial according to many colorectal cancer guidelines. The aim of this study was to compare short- and long-term outcomes in patients who underw...
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.

Placement of one of the surgeon's gloved hands into the ABDOMINAL CAVITY to perform manual manipulations that facilitate the laparoscopic procedures.
Colon or Colorectal cancer is the growth of malignant polyps on the colon, bowel, anus and rectum. Growths in these locations can be benign, and removed by colonoscopy, but they have a risk of becoming malignant. About 10 per cent of bowel cancer...
