Objective: We aimed to present our initial experience with robotic single-port surgery performed using the da Vinci® SP surgical system for benign gynecologic diseases. Materials and methods: This retrospective cohort study was performed at an academic tertiary care hospital From December 2018 to January 2019. Thirty-one women with benign gynecologic diseases underwent robotic single-port surgery performed using the da Vinci® SP surgical system. Results: During the study period, hysterectomy, myomectomy, adnexectomy, and sacrocolpopexy were performed in seven, twelve, five, and seven women, respectively. The mean age and body mass index of patients, respectively, were 47.7 ± 12.8 years and 22.7 ± 3.1 kg/m2. In terms of operative outcomes, the mean docking time, operating time, estimated blood loss, and hospitalization time were 2.2 ± 2.1 min, 126.3 ± 61.6 min, 93.9 ± 76.9 mL, and 4.6 ± 0.7 days. There was no laparoconversion or major complication. Conclusion: Robotic single-port laparoscopy using the da Vinci® SP surgical system might be a suitable alternative surgical technique for various benign gynecologic diseases. However, further studies are required to clarify the feasibility and safety of the application of this novel robot surgical system.
