  • Surgery is the cornerstone of treatment in gynecologic oncology.
  • Surgery is being incorporated and adapted to the evolving treatment landscape in gynecologic oncology. 
  • This special issue highlights the opportunities of tailoring surgical approaches to individual patients both in regard to radically and novel surgical techniques. It brings together out of the box topics such as surgery for lymphedema, uterine transposition, imaging, quality of life, and medico-legal aspects. 
  • All articles were written by respected and well-known experts on each topic.
  • Our hope and intention is that this Special Issue will become a significant resource in surgery for gyn oncology and may support and inspire surgeons to deliver better treatment.
