Traditional open surgery is often used for complex gynecologic radical and ultra-radical surgical cases and may be the best treatment option for the situation of some patients with gynecologic cancer.
Gynecologic oncologists at Mercy use laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgery techniques as a treatment option for some gynecologic cancers.
Robotic surgery provides many advantages including, typically, a shorter hospital stay, less scarring and a faster return to daily activities. Learn more about robotic surgery for gynecologic cancer.
Traditional Open Surgery remains one of the many surgical options available to women who are facing surgery due to reproductive or genital tract complications.
