Robotic surgery for low-stage cervical cancer

Project summary

A cervical tumor can be removed in various ways: by means of an incision in the abdominal wall, or by means of keyhole surgery, with or without robotic assistance. The advantages of the robotic procedure are obvious: less blood loss and a faster recovery. The most important part of the study is to record the oncological safety. Erasmus MC coordinates the Dutch arm of the international trial. In the Netherlands, all five centers that perform this procedure are participating in the study.
