Presented here is a case of a robotic subtotal colectomy performed with the DaVinci Xi robotic system. Due to the upgraded technology involved with the Xi, the robot can be manipulated to work in multiple quadrants of the abdomen, at varying distance from the ports. In our current case, it allowed us to complete a subtotal colectomy using the same port configuration and re-docking the system just once to switch from the left abdomen to the right. The dissection was completed systematically and without difficulty in manipulating the robotic arms.
