Head and neck region is complex with many vital vessels and muscles criss crossing each other. Surgical manipulation in this area requires adequate knowledge, skill and dexterity.1 Minimal invasive surgery is the key to success for some specific maxillofacial surgeries. During the 1990s NASA, along with the Stanford Research Institute, hoped to establish a programme to enable surgeons to do complex operations on wounded soldiers from a remote location. Intuitive Surgical produced the da Vinci® Surgical System (Sunnyvale, California, USA), which consists of a command console at which the surgeon sits and operates from a remote site, It controls a robotic surgical cart that houses an endoscope and three robotic arms with interchangeable Instruments. Transoral robotic surgery is a form of robotic surgery with 4 robotic arms inserted from the oral cavity.
