Robot-assisted benign gynaecological surgery

Topic Status Incomplete

Some non-cancerous gynaecological conditions, such as endometriosis, may require surgical treatment. Robot-assisted surgery may be used instead of conventional open or laparoscopic approaches. This involves by inserting a robotic surgical probe into a small laparoscopic or ‘keyhole’ incision, with the surgeon operating from a separate remote console.



Health Technology Wales (HTW) researchers searched for evidence on the clinical and cost effectiveness of robot-assisted benign gynaecological surgery.
