The book demonstrates the step-by-step method of performing minimally invasive esophagectomy and robot-assisted esophagectomy. Chapters cover the techniques of performing minimally invasive and robot-assisted Ivor Lewis esophagectomy and McKeown esophagectomy as well as variation in methods of chest and neck anastomosis and a method to perform jejunostomy tube placement. Each author provides a narrative on their technique in performing the esophagectomy with pearls for different parts of the operation. As with any other surgical procedure, there are controversies about how to handle different parts of the operation. The goal of the book is not to debate the best method, but to provide a method to perform the complex operation in a minimally invasive way. Atlas of Minimally Invasive and Robotic Esophagectomyincorporates robot-assisted esophagectomy techniques and aims to benefit specialists and trainees that treat patients with esophageal cancer.
