The Northwestern Medicine Division of Gynecologic Oncology, which is located in downtown Chicago, is dedicated to offering less invasive alternatives to traditional procedures for women diagnosed with gynecologic cancers.
Since the introduction of robotic surgery, the Gynecologic Oncology Robotic Surgery Program has evolved into one of the nation's premier robotic surgery programs for gynecologic cancers.
Since its inception in 2007, over 500 women have undergone robotic surgery for a variety of gynecologic cancers and premalignant conditions including:
Some of the procedures performed to date include:
As national leaders in the treatment of women with gynecologic cancers, the integration of robotic surgery provides women with leading-edge, state-of-the-art treatment options. In addition to providing clinical expertise, the Robotic Surgery Program at Prentice Women’s Hospital is a national leader in research and education for robotic surgery.
Numerous peer-reviewed publications on robotic surgical outcomes and fellow/resident education have been published based upon data gathered from our program and we currently have several manuscripts being submitted for publication as well.
