Abstract

This review evaluates the use of robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery in the treatment of gynecologic malignancies and objectively evaluates the use of these systems in performing radical hysterectomies and surgical staging of gynecologic malignancies. The review focuses on surgical length, blood loss, complications, recovery time, and adequacy of surgical staging of robotic-assisted surgery compared to abdominal and non-robotically assisted laparoscopic surgery for malignancies.
