A 62-year-old male patient applied to our clinic with the complaint of non-specific chest pain. On the tomography of the patient, a mass of approximately 1 cm in the lower lobe of the right lung was detected, and there was no distant metastasis. A transthoracic needle biopsy was performed on the patient. Right lower lobectomy operation was performed using wristed instruments (Artisential® Wristed Instruments) in this non-small cell lung cancer patient. sPRS provides more mobility than VATS and we think that it is a more cost effective surgical instrument than robotic surgery. We think that surgeons should embrace new technologies in order to provide more benefits to patients.
