We are going to share the experience of robotic-assisted thoracoscopic segmentectomy. A 55-year-old patient underwent robotic-assisted thoracic surgery for a nodule in the right segment 6. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 3 without any perioperative complications. This case showed the robotic-assisted technique is a safe approach for lung segmentectomy.
