Laser Surgery: Surgical laser procedures can be important tools in the treatment of gynecologic malignancies.
Robotic da Vinci® Surgery: Robotic-assisted surgery provides your surgeon a 3D-high-definition view of the surgical area and allows for a greater range of motion through small incisions.
Other surgical options include:
Abdominal or vaginal surgery: a surgical practice performed through an incision in the abdomen or vaginal canal
Aggressive surgical debulking: a surgical practiced used for advanced cancers to remove the tumor as well as many cancer cells as possible.
