Each year in the United States, approximately 71,500 women are diagnosed with gynecologic cancer and approximately 26,500 women die from it. For years, traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision, was the standard approach for gynecologic procedures. Now, doctors at St. Vincent's Medical Center are using robot-assisted surgery to perform gynecologic procedures. It is less invasive and more effective. Drs. Buckley and Nowicki discuss the advantages of using the daVinci robot to treat some gynecological cancers.
