Minimally invasive colorectal surgery continues to evolve. As more is learned about the techniques and surgical and oncologic outcomes, practice and technique are modified. It also becomes clear that new technologies do not always provide improved outcomes, especially in novice hands. Therefore, it remains imperative that clinicians understand the benefits and limitations of each minimally-invasive technique. The goal remains to decrease the impact of surgery and provide an optimal recovery while remaining diligent to provide optimal functional and oncologic outcomes.
