"This comprehensive book covers not only standard robotic surgery for colon and rectal conditions, but also the da Vinci Xi platform, hybrid techniques, and transanal robotic surgery. ... written for colorectal surgeons on all phases of the learning curve, both in training and learning in practice. ... I am especially happy to have this book on my shelf. It fills the gap between the standard techniques of the past and the new technology, which is usually available only in journals." (Shauna Lorenzo-Rivero, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2017)
