The special issue aims to feature research that shapes our understanding of the application of minimally invasive surgery in gynecologic oncology.
Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has revolutionized the management of gynecologic cancers with the advantages of decreased surgical morbidity, shorter hospitalization, and improved quality of life compared to laparotomy. The rapid adoption of MIS was driven by all relevant stakeholders such as surgeons, patients, hospitals, and insurance providers. Indeed, practice patterns changed prior to data proving equivalent oncologic outcomes from MIS, when compared to laparotomy, were available. This special issue of the European Journal of Gynecologic Oncology seeks original research on the role of MIS in gynecologic oncology, with emphasis given to comparative effectiveness and oncologic outcomes. Original research describing novel MIS techniques presented with outcomes, as well as research examining oncologic safety in MIS are also invited.
