Extra-adrenal paraganglioma is a tumor which originated outside the adrenal glands and caused clinical manifestations similar to those of pheochromocytoma. We present a case of successful robotic-assisted resection of paraganglioma in the right renal hilum region.This video highlights the technical details of a robotic-assisted resection of a paraganglioma located at the right renal hilum region. Robotic-assisted surgery may facilitate meticulous dissection and resection of challenging renal hilar lesions.
