We present a case report of robotic transaxillar approach thyroidectomy of a huge retrosternal goiter. A 37 year-old female with an enlarged retrosternal goiter underwent a transaxillary robotassisted gasless thyroidectomy in the American Hospital of Paris. The main outcome measures were feasibility and safety of this technique. A huge 15 cm retrosternal goiter was completely resected via the transaxillar incision.
