Since 1990, laparoscopy and minimally invasive techniques have revolutionized digestive surgery. Nevertheless, the use of conventional laparoscopy remains limited to procedures of low complexity (cholecystectomy, appendectomy) or intermediate complexity (fundoplicature, segmental colectomies). The aim of this article is to present the technical characteristics of the da Vinci® robot, and to better define its potential applications in digestive surgery. Indeed, if cholecystectomy as well as gastric fundoplicature lend themselves well to robotic surgery, robotic surgery in these indications does not offer any advantage over classical laparoscopy. The same is probably not true for more complex procedures such as gastric bypass or total mesorectal resection.
