Abstract

Introduction: The aim of this study was to report a case of cervical cancer stage IB2 treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy, followed by simultaneous robotic-assisted radical trachelectomy and reversal of tubal sterilization. Case Description: This case occurred in a university hospital involving a 31-y-old woman with stage IB2 cervical cancer treated using neoadjuvant chemotherapy, robotic surgery, and tubal anastomosis to determine cancer disease status and achieve restoration of tubal patency. Discussion: A successful radical trachelectomy with patent tubes was done bilaterally. Cancer and fertility procedures can be simultaneously implemented and achieved.
