Da Vinci surgical system has been widely used in thoracic surgery as a new technique. We are going to share the experience of robotic surgery for right middle lobectomy. A 48-year-old patient with a ground-glass opacity (GGO) underwent robotic-assisted right middle lobectomy in our center. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 4 without any perioperative complications. The pathological stage was T1aN0M0 (stage IA).
