In the past decade, robotic thoracic surgery for atomic lung resections became the most recent minimally invasive technique. The studies have shown its feasibility and safety. Three-dimensional high-definition camera, dexterity, increased maneuverability and precision in dissection have been demonstrated to be its superiorities. I believe these superiorities provide the short learning curve.
I would like to thank to Journal of Visualized Surgery (JOVS) for providing us a platform to create an issue for “Robotic Lung Resections”. I personally know that authors in this issue, reflected their high volume robotic surgery experience. I also know and appreciate that all of the participating authors created this issue in their extreme workload. I am grateful to authors who participated in this issue.
