Surgical Approaches for Gynecologic Cancers

Posted On 2021-11-08 18:14:05

This series on “Surgical Approaches for Gynecologic Cancers” was edited by Dr. Federico Ferrari, from Department of Obstetrics and gynecology, Spedali Civili Brescia, Italy.

In this series, we put the best emphasis on the surgical approach for ovarian cancer with a series of three articles that encompass all the critical phases related to surgery for this malignancy. In detail, we investigated the role of interval debulking surgery by detailing all that should be known for an optimal choice and the role of laparoscopy in this type of surgery. Again, we focused on secondary cytoreduction for recurrent ovarian cancer giving an expert point of view. Finally, we investigated the role of robotic surgery in endometrial cancer, in particular in comparison with classic keyhole surgery.
