We are going to share the experience of robotic surgery for right upper lobectomy. A 71-year-old patient underwent robotic-assisted thoracoscopic surgery for a primary lung adenocarcinoma. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 3 without any perioperative complications. The pathological stage was T1aN0M0 (stage IA). Our result showed the robotic-assisted thoracoscopic surgery was a feasible and reliable surgical approach for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
