Abstract

Minimally invasive surgery has become a standard in the surgical treatment for many women with gynecologic cancers. Within the scope of minimally invasive surgery, several techniques exist. Here, we provide an overview of the challenging and controversial aspects of minimally invasive surgery in the field of gynecologic oncology, including single-site surgery, operating on morbidly obese patients, sentinel lymph node mapping, and recent trials and controversy of treating gynecologic cancer patients with a minimally invasive surgical approach.
