To present a case of successful robotic assisted radical trachelectomy. A nulliparous woman with early cervical cancer underwent a laparoscopic radical trachelectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy with the da Vinci robot (Intuitive Surgical Inc., Sunnyvale, CA). After the pelvic lymph nodes were found negative on frozen section, the parametria, paracolpia and uterosacral ligaments were dissected transabdominally sparing the ascending branches of the uterine arteries. Cervical transection and vaginal closure were performed transvaginally. Surgical time was 450 min. No perioperative complications were noted. Robotic laparoscopic radical trachelectomy may bridge the gap between laparotomy and laparoscopy for radical trachelectomy.
