New York/Stuttgart –Robotic Head and Neck Surgery, recently published by Thieme, is a reference in which international experts collaborate and describe the current state of the art of robot-assisted surgery of structures within the head and neck. The text provides a practical approach to robot-assisted techniques, starting with the basics of training and education, ethical considerations, room set-up and instrumentation, and avoidance of complications. Specific surgical sites are also discussed, including approaches to malignancies of the oropharynx, larynx, hypopharynx, parapharyngeal space, thyroid, neck, and skull base.

Key Features:

  • Fundamental training and education—from ethical considerations and room set-up—to avoiding complications and clinical pearls
  • Online access to ten videos covering the treatment of squamous and spindle cell carcinomas
  • More than 140 superb illustrations enhance the didactic text

Although further innovations and refinement of this technology will be forthcoming, the current state of robotic surgery encompassed in these pages lays a foundation for today and inspiration for tomorrow’s advancements. The book is an invaluable resource for surgeons and residents interested in learning about and incorporating surgical robotics into otolaryngology practice, and will also benefit medical and radiation oncologists.
