This chapter will introduce the single port robotic system. Topics include an introduction to the robotic single site port, the trocars, and the single site instruments. Step-by-step instruction is provided on how to create the umbilical incision and properly insert the single site port and trocars. The advantages and disadvantages of single port robotic surgery compared to multiple port robotic surgery and laparoscopic single site surgery are reviewed. Surgical tips and tricks are provided throughout each section to maximize efficiency, minimize complications, and overcome inherent limitations of the robotic single site system. The utility of the robotic single site platform for performing minor gynecologic surgery is discussed. Finally, a simple method for umbilical closure is described.
