Robotic Surgery for Gynecologic Cancers
Robot-assisted surgery has become the preferred treatment in surgical solutions for many gynecologic cancer patients. Benefits of this minimally invasive option include:
- Reduced pain
- Less scarring
- Shorter recovery time
- Minimal risk of complications
In the area of gynecologic oncology, Wake Forest Baptist Health offers robot-assisted surgery to gynecologic oncology patients with endometrial cancer, early stage cervical cancer, and in the completion of staging for early ovarian cancer. These procedures often involve a hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, lymph node dissection, staging biopsies (to determine the extent of disease) and omentectomy.
