Abstract

As part of minimally invasive surgery, robotic-assisted approach is becoming increasingly popular in gynecologic oncology. It has been shown to be effective and feasible for staging and treating endometrial and cervical cancer, but its role in the context of primary and recurrent ovarian cancers is presently debated. Scanty data are available in the literature, and the level of evidence supporting its use in ovarian cancer is quite low. However, from a retrospective case–control series, robotic surgery seems to be safe and feasible for early-stage ovarian cancer. Its use in treating patients with advanced-stage or relapsed ovarian cancer is still highly controversial, suggesting the choice of robotic approach in a highly selected population.
