Over the past three decades, technical advances in the field of minimally invasive surgery have been exploding. One of the most revolutionary advances has been the development of the robotic surgical system. Recently, the robot-assisted thoracic surgery (RATS) approach has been widely adopted with several reported advantages, including enhanced three-dimensional visualization, improved dexterity of instrumentation, and ergonomic design, which are believed to help us provide patients with more precise and effective surgery. However, concerns have been raised regarding the increased cost and potentially non-increased effectiveness of RATS compared with other established minimally invasive thoracic surgical approaches such as traditional video-assisted thoracic surgery. This Special Issue of the Journal of Personalized Medicine aims to highlight the current status and future perspectives of robotics in the field of thoracic surgery. The technical and scientific advances in minimally invasive thoracic surgery will continue to move forward with personalized and optimal treatment for thoracic malignancies.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Personalized Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
