Cancer surgery of the mouth and throat can involve major incision wounds, tracheotomy, or necessitate the breaking of bones. Recognizing the benefits and success of robotic surgery in other areas of medicine, the authors present its use in head and neck surgery, resulting in less surgery, less deformity, and faster rehabilitation.

In this new book, the authors describe the preoperative aspects of Transoral Robotic Surgery (TORS), including patient evaluation, instrumentation and set-up, moving on to diagnostic endoscopic and surgical techniques for tonsillectomy, laryngectomy, tongue base and glottic resection, and speech and swallowing considerations. They conclude with an examination of the potential for TORS in skull-base surgery, its future application and, importantly, telesurgery via the Internet.

A pioneering book for a pioneering surgical technique in head and neck surgical technique and management, this should be on the shelf of every otolaryngology-head and neck surgeon.
