In the last years, the practice of surgery is evolved thanks to the introduction of videolaparoscopic and robotic techniques. Laparoscopic surgery has revolutionized the concept of minimally invasive surgery in the last decades but it presents limitations due to the normal mechanism of the human hand. The robotic-assisted surgery is designed to overcome these limitations. In comparison with laparoscopic surgery, the robotic technique presents many advantages such as 3-dimensional vision, a decrease of surgeon's fatigue and tremors, and an increase of wrist motion improved dexterity and greater surgical precision. Many procedures have already been performed with this technique in urology, cardiac surgery and general surgery. Nowadays the use of the robotic technique is becoming more frequent also in gynaecological surgery and it is preferred to conventional laparoscopy for the treatment of gynaecological malignancies and most of the benign disease of certain complexity, such as hysterectomy or myomectomy.
