Radical cystectomy (RC) remains the cornerstone of the treatment of muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). In some cases, RC in women also involves the removal of the uterus, ovaries, uterine tubes, and a portion of vagina. This video describes the surgical technique of "anterior pelvectomy with intracorporeal ileal conduit diversion: robot-assisted procedure" in a stepwise fashion. Authors start with the operating room set-up and port positioning. The technical key steps of the procedure are thoroughly described. Nowadays, it is a well-known and standardized technique.
