Robotic Surgery for Women's Cancers

Robotic Surgery for Womens Cancers

At OHSU, specially trained surgeons use the robot to perform surgical procedures with unmatched precision and control, using only a few small incisions. Women’s cancers we treat with robotic surgery include:

  • Cervical cancer
  • Endometrial cancer (uterine)
  • Some cancer staging such as lymph node dissections

Advantages of robotic surgery include:

  • Less discomfort after surgery
  • Fewer complications
  • Reduced scar tissue formation
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery and earlier return to normal activities
