Minimally invasive surgery in the foregut can be challenging when planning port placement for more than one operative target, i.e. the hiatus and the biliary tree. Robotic surgery, which allows seven degrees of freedom, provides increased versatility and improved ability to address multiple sites from the same ports. In this video, we present a robotic gastric wedge resection for a GIST tumor, hiatal hernia repair with Toupet fundoplication, pyloroplasty and cholecystectomy. All three operative sites in the abdomen were completed with five ports and did not require re-docking of the robot, saving significant time while maintaining a safe and comfortable operative environment.
