During the last decade, robotic surgery has evolved from a novelty with anticipated potential to the preferred surgical procedure in multiple surgical disciplines such as urology, gynecology, thoracic surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, and gastrointestinal surgery. The evolution of robotic surgery in head and neck surgery has expanded on the success of transoral surgery with other modalities to remove head and neck
