We present a case of a patient in whom subcutaneous emphysema, pneumoperitoneum, and pneumothorax occurred on postoperative day 1 after robotic-assisted supracervical hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy, sacrocolpopexy, and retropubic midurethral sling placement for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. This case demonstrates a rare complication of gynecologic laparoscopic procedures.
