Our aim is to present surgical technique the outcome of robotic-assisted bladder diverticulectomy (RABD).

A 60-year-old patient diagnosed with bladder diverticulum in the right cranial side of his bladder underwent RABD. We inserted 6 F double J stent on the right side before the procedure. A transperitoneal approach was preferred with patient position the port placement similar to that of robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy . The diverticulum was expanded by filling the bladder with 100 cc of normal saline through the Foley catheter. The distended bladder diverticulum was mobilized, transacted at its neck the dissected from the surrounding tissue. The bladder the peritoneum were closed by 3/0 barbed V-Loc continuous suture.

Total operative time was 60 minutes. Patient was discharged from the hospital at the seventh day without complication.

RABD is an effective procedure as surgical management of bladder diverticulum.
