We are going to share the experience of robotic surgery for esophageal leiomyoma. A 46-year-old patient underwent robotic-assisted enucleation of esophageal leiomyoma in our center. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 5 without any perioperative complications. Our result showed the robotic-assisted surgery has some advantages particularly in performing suture and knot tying.
