Three-dimensional, high-definition images, small instruments with endowrist technology, ergonomic position and the easiness to teach, are possibly the main reasons why robotic surgery will continue to gain ground to others forms of surgery. The current applications of robotics in functional urology are: the correction of pelvic organ prolapse, the correction of female stress urinary incontinence (artificial urinary sphincter) and the treatment of chronic pelvic pain (pudendal nerveneurolysis). In this paper, we explain our robotic techniques in these three scenarios, as well as, provide the most updated data of our series.
