  • The traditional treatment of choice for urachal carcinoma has been either an open radical cystectomy or the more recently accepted extended partial cystectomy and umbilectomy. Recently a laparoscopic technique has been reported. We report for the first time a robot-assisted technique for an extended partial cystectomy with en bloc umbilectomy for the management of urachal carcinoma in a 49-year-old man.
