With the progress of the technology, video-assisted surgeries have been developed in thoracic surgery as well as the other branches. With the widespread use in the 2000’s, robotic surgical systems had also found a place within the field of thoracic surgery. First in benign diseases and then in parallel with the increasing experience, it started to be used in cancer surgery which requires more technical skill. It was shown in various articles that it can be used in a wide area from wedge resections to pneumonectomy.
