Abstract

Laparoscopic management of gynecologic malignancies has experienced an unparalleled expansion in the last 10-15 years, driven by tremendous advances in technology, medicine, and surgical techniques. The best example of this expansion relates to the adoption of robotic technology for minimally invasive procedures. These and other minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures are now being explored and defined and are gaining wide acceptance for treatment the of endometrial, cervical, and ovarian cancer. When compared with standard open techniques in large studies, minimally invasive procedures seem to offer similar or improved survival with the added benefits of faster recovery, reduced blood loss, decreased pain, and improved quality of life. Ongoing clinical trials will undoubtedly encourage current and future laparoscopic surgeons to deploy this exciting technology to achieve the surgical extirpation of malignant disease while providing patients with the most minimally invasive approach.
