Gynecologic Oncology

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.
