Abstract

Robotic surgery is growing exponentially in elective colorectal procedures, but utilization of robotics in urgent and emergency procedures remains low. Robotic surgery can be safely utilized for the management of several acute colorectal operations such as anastomotic leaks, perforated diverticulitis, and more. This chapter discusses safe access principles and planning, as well as technical aspects of these complex procedures, and the pathway to building a 24/7 robotic access culture.
