Esophagectomy is a surgical operation which requires technical expertise to decrease the morbidity and mortality frequently associated with this advance procedure. Various minimally invasive esophagectomy techniques have been developed to decrease the negative impact of esophageal resection. Recently, robotic assisted esophagectomies have been described with a wide variety in technique and outcome disparity. This article is a summation review of the current literature regarding the various techniques and surgical outcomes of robotic assisted esophagectomies.
