Fibroids are the most common benign tumors affecting fertility and quality of life. Different methods either definitive or fertility sparing are used for their management by using open, laparoscopic and robotic techniques. This is a narrative review presenting the role and the advantages of robotic surgery in fibroids (myomectomies or hysterectomies). Such a management is effective, safe and feasible in hands of well-trained teams even for multiple, large or deep located fibroids.
