Background: Laparoscopic pyeolplasty has become a minimally invasive alternative to open pyeloplasty. Due to technical concerns with intracorporeal suturing, robotic pyeloplasty has become an emerging alternative. Methods: The literature was reviewed for reports and outcomes on robotic pyeloplasty. Results: Reports of robotic pyeloplasty are increasing, and outcomes appear excellent. Conclusions: Robotic pyeloplasty is feasible with excellent outcomes. Challenges remain in making the procedure cost effective.
