Abstract

Transoral Robotic Surgery (TORS) is an emerging technique for the treatment of head and neck tumors. The aim of this paper is to describe our experience of perioperative considerations. Indeed, TORS is feasible, safe, and both oncologically and functionally effective. However, this technology has certain perioperative implications. We present the experience of anesthesiologists and surgeons over the past ten years with the Da Vinci Surgical System, and strongly recommend assigning a specific medical and paramedical team to shorten the learning curve and manage this innovative surgical technique with confidence and expertise.
