Abstract

The use of robotics has been developing since several decades, but its adoption for Digestive Surgery only started to emerge in the 1990ies. Since then, a great variety of Digestive Surgery procedures have been performed using several different robotic devices. While most procedures appear feasible, the role of robotics for Digestive Surgery remains a subject of debate as increased costs need to be justified. This habilitation gives an overview on the history of robotics, the current status in Digestive Surgery, the scientific contribution of the Division of Digestive Surgery of the University of Geneva and a brief outlook into the future of robotics for Digestive Surgery.
