Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Surgery (MILS) for the treatment of patients with gynecologic pathology offers select patients the opportunity to have 1) complete surgical staging without the morbidity associated with traditional staging, 2) interval surgical staging if the initial surgery did not include adequate evaluation of the abdominal cavity, pelvic and aortic lymph nodes, and 3) Removal of benign pelvic masses, cysts, adhesions, and ectopic pregnancy. In cervical cancer MILS is focused on those patients with advanced disease, stages II to IV. In endometrial cancer MILS serves to complete the staging of inadequate primary surgery. In ovarian cancer MILS offers reassessment surgery post chemotherapy.
