Robotic surgery in oncology

Guest Editors: B Rocco, G Albo and G Gaia

Robotic surgery is an advanced form of minimally invasive or laparoscopic (small incision) surgery where surgeons use a computer-controlled robot to assist them in certain surgical procedures. In recent years robotic surgery has become a new standard of treatment for many cancers including prostate, gynaecological and abdominal surgery. In the collection of papers in this special issue a global overview of existing robotic experiences is presented which demonstrates that there are multiple opportunities for robotics in the oncological setting.
