The da Vinci robotic system in head and neck surgery. Intuitive Surgical Inc. (Sunnyvale, Ca, USA) extended the use of the da Vinci robot to head and neck surgery in 2005 following the previous use in urological, gynecological and cardiothoracic surgery. It then gained wide popularity throughout the globe. Our aim is to describe the da Vinci Robot System and discuss its applications in head and neck surgery. Continued refinements and applications in robotic surgery for otolaryngology will in time be possible as new robotic procedures are developed for endolaryngeal work.
