A combined pelvic lymphadenectomy with radical vaginal trachelectomy is an alternative to radical hysterectomy in the treatment of young women with cervical cancer desiring fertility preservation. This technique requires advanced vaginal surgery skills not commonly acquired. In an attempt to simplify the procedure we preformed what we believe to be the first case of robotic-assisted radical trachelectomy. A 30-year-old woman, gravida 1, para 1, desiring fertility preservation was given the… CONTINUE READING
