Abstract

The surgical management of endometrial cancer has been markedly changed by minimally invasive techniques. After three decades of laparoscopy, robotic surgery has built upon and expanded the population of patients able to benefit from minimally invasive techniques. Updates in the field of laparoscopy continue, including single-site surgery. The emergence and rapid uptake of robotics continues to produce favorable outcomes while at the same time, expanding minimally invasive surgery to the obese and elderly populations. Sentinel lymph node detection and single-port surgery are expanding areas that will continue to push the role of minimally invasive surgery in endometrial cancer.
