Cervical cancer can be detected incidentally after simple hysterectomy carried out for benign gynecological conditions or preinvasive cervical lesions. The risk of recurrence is high, and survival is poor in the absence of further treatment in the form of radiation therapy or radical parametrectomy. Though both forms of treatment result in similar survival, surgery has the advantage to stage the disease and guide the need for adjuvant therapy and also avoids the radiation-associated complications. Though traditionally performed by laparotomy, laparoscopic and robotic approaches have been found to be feasible and safe for this complex procedure.
