Performing robotic thoracic lung resection is becoming an option for patients with complex thoracic disease. The robotic-assisted approach has similar survival with decreased postoperative pain, morbidity, and hospital length of stay compared with the open approach in pneumonectomy, bronchoplasty, and arterioplasty. Appropriate patient selection based on medical and surgical history combined with surgeon experience is imperative for an excellent outcome. This article will discuss the use of the robot in pneumonectomy, arterioplasty, and bronchoplasty to provide information about the technical approach and postoperative management.
