Parathyroid surgeries have gained a lot of popularity because of the immediate result and relief of symptoms in the patient. They are aimed at correcting the imbalance in calcium and phosphate homeostasis.. Parathyroid surgery have evolved over time from open surgeries involving the identification of glands under normal vision to minimally invasive techniques. With the advent of new technologies, parathyroid surgeries have become easier and less traumatic physically and psychologically. Patient has an easier recovery period and because the newer techniques involve a hidden scar, coametic results are great. We present a case of parathyroid adenoma which was managed by robotic parathyroidectomy.
