Abstract

Robotic platform, despite its limitations, has made surgeries to be performed more easily in a minimally invasive way. This platform is a reliable and durable way to be precise in dissection and reconstruction, enabling surgeons to bridge the gap between laparotomy and laparoscopy. Endometriosis is an enigmatic disease that exists in many forms, like peritoneal endometriosis, ovarian endometriosis, and extragenital endometriosis. The main goal of surgical treatment is restoration of anatomy and removal of all endometriotic implants, with the hope of alleviating pain and improving fertility.
