Abstract

Minimally invasive surgery has rapidly changed the performance of surgical practice in a wide range of surgical specialities in the last decade of the 20th century. The marked progress in endoscopic surgery has been conducted especially in general and digestive surgery. The Department of Surgery, School of Medicine, Keio University has contributed to the development and establishment of endoscopic surgery in every subspeciality of general and digestive surgery. Our achievements include the development of original methods for laparoscopic wedge gastrectomy and endoscopic thyroidectomy, establishment of surgical techniques in endoscopic surgery for esophageal, gastric, colorectal and hepatobiliary diseases, and the introduction of robotics and tele-communicative technologies to endoscopic surgery.
