  • Ureterosciatic hernias (USH) are a rare entity and to date there have been limited case reports detailing their presentation, diagnosis, and management. Until recently, repair of ureterosciatic hernias has been performed via open, endoscopic, or purely laparoscopic approaches. We present the second known published case of a robotic approach to the USH repair with detailed outline of the surgical technique accompanied by video recording from the operative procedure.
