Robotic-assisted esophageal surgery is a minimally invasive procedure to treat various problems with the esophagus, the tube that connects the throat to the stomach. Your doctor performs that surgery through small incisions with the help of robotic arms that improves accuracy and dexterity.
A few small keyhole incisions are made and a video camera and instruments are passed through these to visualize and access the site of surgery. The instruments are held by precisely-controlled robotic arms which your doctor operates at a console in the operating room. The video camera provides a 3D view and the robotic arms can be
