Robotic-assisted surgery is now widely used in the field of thoracic surgery. We are going to share the experience of robotic surgery for left upper lobectomy. A 63-year-old patient underwent robotic-assisted thoracic surgery for a primary non-small cell lung cancer. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 3 without any perioperative complications. The pathological stage was T1aN0M0 (stage IA).
