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 simultaneously expanding minimal access surgery to the obese and elderly populations. Sentinel lymph node detection and single port surgery are expanding areas which will continue to push the role of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in endometrial cancer. In this key lecture, Dr. Querleu will discuss the role of MIS in the management of endometrial cancer.
