Robotic transanal surgery (RTS) has been a natural evolution of transanal minimally invasive surgery. This video demonstrates how RTS is performed for the full-thickness excision of a malignant rectal polyp, with endoluminal robotic suturing of the rectal wall defect. The general approach to RTS, including the approach to docking of the robotic cart, are also illustrated in video format.
