Ampullary tumors are uncommon lesions. Due to proximity to important anatomic structures, such as the major and minor papilla, its management requires special treatment and attention. Including endoscopic resection, which is a minimally invasive procedure with less morbidity than OPEN surgery and has been used with satisfactory outcomes. Nevertheless, not all lesions can be reached endoscopically for removal. Robotic surgery has provided another approach to management and has been demonstrated to be a superior option when compared to laparoscopic surgery. This approach is both safe and feasible. The aim of this educational video is to describe the technique used by the authors to perform a transduodenal ampullectomy for benign tumors.
