Is robotic thyroid surgery a real progress?

Epublication WebSurg.com, Apr 2017;17(04). URL:
In this key lecture, Prof. WY Chung briefly describes his experience and his own technique to perform robotic thyroid surgery. He presents advances in surgical indications and compares the main differences of single incision robotic thyroidectomy and LND with novel techniques, e.g. BABA, facelift thyroidectomy, and transoral periosteal thyroidectomy. He demonstrates the advantages and limitations using research data to describe the future of robotic thyroidectomy as a minimally invasive surgery. He highlights new technologies and newly developed robotic systems with current improvements, which focus on haptic feedback, tactile sensation, and single orifice surgery, which will make AI robotic automation surgery possible in the future.
