Robotic surgery (da Vinci® Surgical System) for cervical cancer
The da Vinci Surgical System may be a better treatment option for cervical cancer patients, as it offers a minimally invasive alternative to complex surgery, which may result in fewer side effects. In some cases, the da Vinci system might be a good option if you have fertility concerns.
Your surgeon may use Firefly™ Fluorescence Imaging to identify and biopsy sentinel nodes, which helps to determine if the cancer has spread into the lymphatic system. Using this imaging system reduces the need for dissection and limits destruction of tissue.
