Robotic-assisted surgery is now well established and has been introduced into the field of thoracic surgery. We are going to share the experience of robotic surgery for right inferior lobectomy. A 61-year-old patient underwent robotic-assisted thoracic surgery for a primary lung adenocarcinoma. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 6 without any perioperative complications. The pathological stage was T1aN0M0 (stage IA). Our result showed the robotic-assisted thoracoscopic surgery was a safe and feasible surgical approach for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
