Abstract

Robotic surgery was widely applied in oncologic surgery because more degrees of freedom for instruments could overcome the technical difficulties in endoscopic surgery. This study analyzed the learning curve of robotic nipple-sparing mastectomy with immediate prosthesis breast reconstruction in 78 patients with breast cancer. Results show that robotic surgery is noninferior to the endoscopic method once the surgeon has entered the mature phase of the learning curve.
