Minimally Invasive Techniques for Treating Gynecologic Malignancies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

For many women with endometrial and cervical cancers, minimally invasive surgery represents an alternative standard of care to open abdominal procedures, with fewer complications, better postoperative quality of life, and overall lower cost. At the NCCN 22nd Annual Conference, Amanda N. Fader, MD, reviewed several minimally invasive strategies for treating gynecologic cancers, including conventional laparoscopy, robotic-assisted laparoscopy, sentinel lymph node technology, and single-port surgery; highlighted some of the contemporary literature on the role of these procedures; and explored some of the challenges and barriers to their successful performance.
