Robotic Surgery for Cervical Cancer Treatment Benefits
Patients find the following benefits from robotic surgery for cervical cancer:
- Significantly less pain after surgery

Hysterectomy is the second most common surgical procedure for women in the United States. Fletcher Allen physicians perform many robotic hysterectomies annually.
