BACKGROUND Conventional laparoendoscopic single-site (C-LESS) pyeloplasty is technically challenging due to instrument clashing, loss of triangulation, and difficulty sewing. Application of the da Vinci S or Si robotic platforms could potentially overcome these challenges. OBJECTIVE Compare our initial experience with robotic assisted laparoendoscopic single-site (R-LESS) pyeloplasty to our latter experience with C-LESS pyeloplasty (ie, after the initial 15 patients).
