The field of robotic surgery has developed rapidly, and its use for gynecologic conditions has grown exponentially. Surgeons should be skilled at abdominal and laparoscopic approaches for a specific procedure before undertaking robotic approaches. Surgeon training, competency guidelines, and quality metrics should be developed at the institutional level. Robot-assisted cases should be appropriately selected based on the available data and expert opinion. As with any surgical procedure…

Best Practices for Robotic Surgery Programs
Background and Objectives: Robotic surgical programs are increasing in number. Efficient methods by which to monitor and evaluate robotic surgery teams are needed. Methods: Best practices for an
Robotic Surgery in Endometrial Cancer
The number of minimal invasive gynecological oncological operations performed especially for endometrial cancer is increasing rapidly parallel with the increase in robotic systems in hospitals. This
An analysis of operating time over the years for robotic-assisted surgery in gynecology and gynecologic oncology
It is shown that robotic surgery has a lot of scope for improvement in surgical performance beyond its first and second years and the surgical performance as seen from the improved surgical times keeps on improving even after many years.
Surgeon satisfaction and outcomes of tele-proctoring for robotic gynecologic surgery
This pilot study assesses surgeon satisfaction and operative outcomes with a novel operative tele-proctoring system with a continuous two-way video-audio feed that allows the off-site surgeon to see the operating room, surgical field, and hands of the robotic surgeon.
The current state and the future of robotic surgery in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery.
There has been increasing interest in using the robot for urologic reconstruction including repair of vesico-vaginal fistula, cystectomy, augmentation cystoplasty, and continent and non-continent diversions.
Robotic versus laparoscopic hysterectomy; comparison of early surgical outcomes
Early surgical outcomes of robotic assisted laparoscopic and Laparoscopic hysterectomy were comparable in terms of EBL, first gas discharge and hospital stay.
Robotic versus laparoscopic hysterectomy in morbidly obese women for endometrial cancer
A retrospective analysis of morbidly obese patients who underwent LH or RH for endometrial cancer or complex atypical hyperplasia at the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse Gynaecological Oncology Unit from 2015 to 2019 was performed.


Evolving role and current state of robotics in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.
Robotic gynecologic surgery.
Well-designed, prospective studies with well-defined clinical, long-term outcomes, including complications, cost, pain, return to normal activity, and quality of life, are needed to fully assess the value of this new technology.
Robotic surgery for benign gynaecological disease.
It is shown that robotic surgery did not benefit women with benign gynaecological disease in effectiveness or in safety, and both studies reported that robotic and laparoscopic surgery seemed comparable regarding intraoperative outcome, complications, length of hospital stay and quality of life.
Committee Opinion No. 701 Summary: Choosing The Route Of Hysterectomy For Benign Disease.

The obstetrician-gynecologist should discuss the options with patients and make clear recommendations on which route of hysterectomy will maximize benefits and minimize risks given the specific clinical situation.
The decisive role of the patient-side surgeon in robotic surgery
It is demonstrated that robotic surgery depends more on the patient-side assistant surgeon’s abilities than has been previously reported and interventions that have the benefit of a trained team are more rapid and secure.
Robotic Compared With Conventional Laparoscopic Hysterectomy: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy and conventional laparoscopy compare well in most surgical aspects, but the robotic procedure is associated with longer operating times and postoperative quality-of-life index was better; however, long-term, there was no difference.
