Variety of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) techniques used in cervical cancer treatment (laparoscopic, robotic-assisted, single-incision laparoscopic surgery, etc.).
Comparative analysis of MIS techniques and open surgery for cervical cancer.
Role of MIS in various surgical procedures (radical hysterectomy, lymph node dissection, etc.).

2. Challenges and Considerations:
Surgical learning curve and training requirements.
Patient selection criteria for MIS in cervical cancer.
Role of MIS in advanced-stage cervical cancer.
Management of complications and limitations of MIS.

3. Oncological Outcomes:

Long-term disease-free survival rates in patients with cervical cancer treated using MIS.
Influence of surgeon expertise on oncological outcomes.

4. Technological Advances:
Integration of robotics and advanced imaging in MIS for cervical cancer.
Role of fluorescence-guided surgery and other intraoperative technologies.

5. Future Directions and Research:
Emerging trends and innovations in MIS for cervical cancer.
Ongoing clinical trials and research studies to further assess MIS outcomes.
Potential areas for improvement and research emphasis.
