and impact quality of life in a positive fashion. Initial data would suggest we accomplish these goals with robotic surgery."

Since the initial introduction into the medical field in the early 2000's, the MIS technique is transforming conventional surgical procedures; particularly for the patient. Patients who suffer from uterine and cervical cancer are the most viable candidates for robotic-assisted surgery. It can also be an effective option for women suffering from ovarian cysts, abdominal uterine bleeding and fibroids. Patients selected for robotics surgery will note additional benefits over traditional surgery, which include reduced risk of blood loss, decreased pain and scarring (due to smaller incisions), a shorter hospital stay and most importantly, a faster recovery period. The four-arm surgical machine provides surgeons with better depth perception, a three-dimensional view of the incision area and a magnification 10 times greater than the human eye, for extremely complex procedures.

"Over the next few years, the field of gynecologic oncology will likely see widespread implementation of robotic-assisted surgery," says Dr. Lowe, who has been performing robotics-based surgeries for over three years and oversees Northwestern Hospitals' robotic surgery program. "Recent data on robotic surgery points to an improvement in several perioperative outcomes and complication rates as compared to traditional surgery for the treatment of uterine and cervical cancers."
