Transanal Minally Invasive Surgery (TAMIS) was pioneered in 2009. It was originally designed so that ordinary laparoscopic instruments could be used to perform high-quality excision of rectal neoplasia. However, robotic transanal surgery (RTS) has been shown to be feasible in both cadaveric models and in humans. This video demonstrates how the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System is used to perform full thickness local excision of a rectal neoplasm.
