Robotic surgery has helped surgeons with complex surgeries in anatomically restricted areas. As experience grows with the robotic platform, pushing the surgical boundaries for better patient outcomes is natural. Low rectal cancers with preserved intersphicteric space (ISS) are eligible for intersphincteric resection (ISR). This video demonstrates easily reproducible steps for the procedure. Notably, the approach includes robotic total mesorectal excision up to the pelvic floor dissecting rectal tube in the intersphincteric groove.Most of the dissection in the can be completed from above , which makes perinial dissection very easy. This is superbly achieved with the da Vinci Xi platform (Intuitive Surgical Inc, Mountain View, California, USA).
