Robotic Gynecologic Oncology

A wide variety of gynecologic cancers can affect a woman's reproductive system, which consists of the uterus, vagina, ovaries and fallopian tubes. Women with early stage gynecologic cancer are often treated with hysterectomy, which is the surgical removal of the uterus.

Today, a less invasive surgical option is available for treating some forms of gynecologic cancer through the use of state-of-the-art robotic technology known as the da Vinci® Surgical System, which is offered at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts. This minimally invasive treatment option is called a robotic hysterectomy. The type of hysterectomy you have will depend upon your medical history and health, as well as the extent of the cancer growth. These robotic-assisted procedures do not require large incisions, making them an ideal choice for many gynecological surgeries.

The gynecologic cancers we treat include:

  • Endometrial cancer
  • Cervical cancer 
  • Ovarian cancer

The da Vinci Surgical System also offers potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:

  • Faster recovery and shorter hospital stay
  • Fewer stitches and less scarring 
  • Lower risk of complications and infections
  • Less blood loss and the need for transfusions
  • Quicker return to normal activities
