We are going to share the experience of robotic-assisted thoracoscopic thymectomy. A 68-year-old patient underwent robotic-assisted thoracic surgery for a primary thymoma. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 3 without any perioperative complications. This case showed the robotic-assisted thoracoscopic thymectomy is a technically sound and safe approach for anterior mediastinal mass.
