Abstract

To date, there has been limited research and reporting in obstetric, gynecological, and female urology literature concerning the use of robotics. Robotics has been utilized only for the treatment of two benign gynecologic conditions: benign hysterectomy1 and sacrocolpopexy, which is a treatment for posthysterectomy vaginal vault prolapse (VVP).2,3 However, laparoscopy has been utilized extensively in gynecologic surgeries and has demonstrated itself to be invaluable with procedures such as total and supracervical hysterectomies and for the evaluation and treatment of endometriosis.4 More recently, laparoscopy has been reported for staging purposes of gynecologic malignancies, for the treatment of early stage endometrial cancer, and the treatment of ectopic pregnancies.5-7
