On behalf of the organizing committee, it’s our great pleasure to welcome you to join us at the first inaugural Asian Summit of Robotic Surgery 2018 scheduled in Singapore. Robotic surgery has developed remarkably over the past decade with many established and emerging indications in many surgical specialties. The field of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery has seen the use of the robotic system in several established indications such as trans-oral resection of oropharyngeal cancer; trans-oral tongue base reduction for obstructive sleep apnea; and remote head and neck surgery for thyroid nodules/and benign neck tumors. With the development and soon-to-be approved next generation robotic system, we expect the field to emerge with newer capabilities to enhance the surgeon’s ability to perform transoral surgery with greater ease and precision. We have put together a comprehensive program emphasizing on the pre-requisite for embarking on robotic head and neck surgery; and training aspects and selection of appropriate patients whom will benefit from this technology advance. Renowned faculty will present “how I do it” videos in this workshop, emphasizing on patient selection, surgical nuances and managing intraoperative complications, so that the participants can understand the entire surgical management of some of these indications.
