Cervical cancer is the most common cause of gynecologic deaths worldwide. In developed countries early detection and prompt management has lead to a decrease in mortality. Standard of care consists of radical surgery or radiation therapy. Given that both treatment modalities have similar survival, selection is usually based on preference and physician/patient related factors. Radical hysterectomy results in excellent local control and traditionally has been performed as an open abdominal procedure. Laparoscopic and robotic radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer is now offered as a minimally invasive option. Recurrent cervical cancer commonly occurs locally. There is some evidence to suggest that after the use of laparoscopic or robotic assisted laparoscopic surgeries, there is a risk for port site recurrence. We hope to evaluate differences in cervical cancer recurrence comparing open vs robotic radical hysterectomy patients.


Patients Who Are Women, 18 Year Or Older Who Have Been Diagnosed With Stage 1A1-1B2 Cervical Cancer And Received Either A Laparoscopic Or Robot Assisted Radical Hysterectomy As Part Of Treatment.
