Robotic-assisted thoracic segmentectomy is a minimally invasive option for the treatment of the resectable lung cancer. Its advantages over conventional video-assisted thoracic surgery include a clear and magnified three-dimensional operative field and the flexible multi-joint arms. This technical article presents a case from our center to share some surgical techniques for this procedure.
