Purpose of Review: We present a comprehensive overview on the development of robotic transoral thyroidectomy, and highlight major challenges in adoption. Recent Findings: Transoral robotic thyroidectomy (TORT) is the newest remote access approach to remove the thyroid gland and draws attention because of its cosmetic excellence. The principal advantage of TORT is that the flap dissection area is comparatively small to other remote-access methods and the lip wounds disappear over time resulting in excellent cosmesis. Summary: TORT could be done safely in the patients with appropriate selection by an experienced surgeon in robotic thyroidectomy. It serves as a potential alternative surgical approach for thyroidectomy when patients are concerned about a neck scar.

Abstract

Purpose of Review: We present a comprehensive overview on the development of robotic transoral thyroidectomy, and highlight major challenges in adoption. Recent Findings: Transoral robotic thyroidectomy (TORT) is the newest remote access approach to remove the thyroid gland and draws attention because of its cosmetic excellence. The principal advantage of TORT is that the flap dissection area is comparatively small to other remote-access methods and the lip wounds disappear over time resulting in excellent cosmesis. Summary: TORT could be done safely in the patients with appropriate selection by an experienced surgeon in robotic thyroidectomy. It serves as a potential alternative surgical approach for thyroidectomy when patients are concerned about a neck scar.
