Introduction
To compare the outcomes of robot-assisted (RAGD2) and laparoscopy-assisted gastrectomy with D2 lymphadenectomy (LAGD2) for patients with gastric cancer.

Material and methods
Relevant articles published up to September 2020 were searched. The weighted mean difference (WMD) was used to pool continuous variables, while risk ratio (RR) was calculated for dichotomous outcomes.

Results
RAGD2 required a longer operating time (WMD = 29.78, 95% confidence interval (CI): 15.97–43.59) and had less operative blood loss (WMD = 31.93, 95% CI: 44.03 to 19.83), shorter time to first flatus (WMD = 0.13, 95% CI: 0.22 to 0.04), shorter time to liquid diet (WMD = 0.20, 95% CI: 0.28 to 0.12), and fewer severe complications (RR = 0.62, 95% CI: 0.43–0.90) and overall complications (RR = 0.75, 95% CI: 0.62–0.91) than LAGD2.

Conclusions
RAGD2 could be beneficial in reducing operative blood loss and postoperative complications relative to LAGD2.
