The introduction of robot-assisted surgery has been a long-standing need in oncological surgery in Hungary, with the launch of robotic surgery in 2022, the catch-up has begun. Surgical robots can be used for a wide range of procedures and carry benefits in uro-oncological patient care. To maximise the benefits, creation of “high volume” centres and training of “high volume” surgeons is necessary, with a potentially important part of early involvement of young surgeons in training programmes. A properly structured, standardised training remains to be an unsolved problem, but it is expected that training places with high quality indicators can be developed after improving surgical volume and experiences.
