Background: We present the case report of synchronous trans‐fascial repair of a large congenital Morgagni hernia (MH) and low anterior resection using a fully robotic approach. Methods: A 61‐year old female presented with fresh red blood in her stool. She had a previous history of abdominal hysterectomy and a performance status of 0. Imaging revealed a low rectal cancer and incidental large MH. Results: Using the Da Vinci X platform the procedure was successfully performed; total operating time of 450 min,
