Since there is no abstract available we provide the first paragraph.

Advances in medical and human genome sequencing technology have revolutionized surgery and biomedical research [1,2]. Minimally invasive approaches such as laparoscopic or robotic surgery as compared with conventional open surgery can improve the outcomes of patients with a wide spectrum of tumors. However, experience, skill, and high-volume hospitals are prerequisites for reaching clinical success that is restricted to quality-of-life (QOL) outcomes without any effect on long-term survival or cure rates.
