This video demonstrates a combined laparoscopic-robotic approach for resection of a low rectal cancer. Mobilization of the colon and mesenteric vascular division are performed laparoscopically. The Da Vinci robot is then utilized to complete the total mesorectal excision (TME). Finally, a laparoscopic stapled colo-anal anastomosis is performed.
