AAGL Position Statement: Robotic-Assisted Laparoscopic Surgery in Benign Gynecology
The AAGL publishes Position Statements on the state of minimally invasive gynecology to improve the overall quality of women’s gynecologic care. The AAGL follows a process to assure that any conflicts of interest are disclosed and appropriately addressed and that relationships with manufacturers and other third parties do not influence the development process.
The Board of Trustees of the AAGL proposed that a Position Statement be developed by leaders in the field of minimally invasive surgery to provide the members of the society a document outlining the current status of robotic surgery and its application in the management of patients with benign gynecologic diseases. The Position Statement has been developed by a group of individuals with experience and interest in the assessment of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. The goal of this document is to present an unbiased view, informed by the available literature, of the critical aspects of robotic surgery that impact the management of patients with gynecologic conditions.
