Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Minimally invasive surgery has made remarkable progress; today not only laparoscopic surgery but also robotic surgery has become widespread. Minimally invasive treatment of organs such as the hepatobiliary and pancreatic organs, which were previously difficult to treat by laparoscopy or robotic surgery, is now possible, and new knowledge such as microanatomy has been obtained in gastrointestinal surgery.

In such an era, we invite you to participate in this Special Issue entitled "New Insights in Laparoscopic Surgery" to discuss new techniques, microanatomy, and postoperative outcomes of robotic and laparoscopic surgery from a wide range of fields, including gynecology and urology. In addition, comparisons between robotic and laparoscopic surgery are also welcome.

Dr. Kentaro Iwaki
Guest Editor
