Even the very concept of Robotic Surgery is changing. We are developing Computer Assisted Robotic Surgical Systems (CASS) and certainly, at some point, some steps will begin to be automated with a direct intervention of the machine on the patient. This will depend basically on warranties that patient safety is preserved. We are still not there (but on the path). But foundations remain: training is paramount. We conducted our first dissection course on Robotic Surgery in February 2015. Given the accelerated pace of the technical and surgical evolution the need for updates is constant. We are confident that the present text will be useful as a guide for experimental training in Robotic Surgery. We have included all the basic contents of the regular training path (including an extensive discussion on how to drive the da Vinci robotic surgery system), as well as the two current main applications in the head and neck: TransOral Robotic Surgery (TORS) and Remote Access to the neck (robotic thyroidectomy and beyond). Head and Neck Surgeons interested in Robotic Surgery might find valuable tips and practical information. But also, for those who just want to know what is all this about and what the current situation is, we have tried to transmit a plain and honest view coming directly from the original authors from whom we have learnt.
