Anesthesiologists and the perioperative team have a tremendous impact upon clinical outcomes in robotic-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. As anesthesiology is developing its role outside the operating room, the patient population benefits from an expanded focus on perioperative critical care and pain management. This article focuses upon the preoperative optimization, unique intraoperative considerations for surgeons and anesthesiologists, and postoperative management of patients undergoing robotic-assisted thoracoscopic surgery.


KEY WORDS: Thoracic surgery - Anesthesiology - Lung neoplasms
