Research interests

Dr. Ramirez was the Principal Investigator in the LACC Trial: A Phase III Randomized Clinical Trial of Laparoscopic or Robotic Radical Hysterectomy versus Abdominal Radical Hysterectomy in Patients with Early Stage Cervical Cancer. This landmark study showed that minimally invasive radical hysterectomy in patients with early-stage cervical cancer was associated with a worse disease-free survival, recurrence rate, progression-free survival, and overall survival when compared to the open approach. These results have been practice changing and all guidelines have changed to the open approach as the standard of care when performing radical hysterectomy. The study was published in The New England Journal of Medicine. Most recently, Dr. Ramirez was made member of the IDEAL Council at Oxford University in England. In this role, he collaborates with leaders in the field of surgical research on developing strategies to integrate innovative surgical tools to the standard of care practice in patients with gynecological cancers.
