Robotic-assisted thoracoscopic segmentectomy: there is a long way to go

Chengqiang Li, Hecheng Li


We appreciate the reviewer’s excellent comments regarding robotic-assisted thoracoscopic S6 segmentectomy (1). We agree that there is no standardized technique for the video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) approach, but without a doubt, the future of surgery is going in the direction of single port access and robotics.
