For Healthcare Professionals: Cervical Cancer

At Memorial Sloan Kettering we provide comprehensive, leading-edge care for women with cervical cancer. Using a multidisciplinary team approach, our outcomes after surgery for both advanced and recurrent disease are among the best in the world. Progress in minimally invasive surgical techniques, including refinements in robotics — we employ the latest da Vinci® Surgical System platforms — have transformed the treatment of this cancer, resulting in such benefits as decreased postoperative pain, improved cosmetic results, and faster recovery. The sensitivity and specificity of our sentinel lymph node mapping approach spares many young women from complete lymph node dissection and possible attendant complications.

Screening Guidelines

The incidence of cervical cancer has dramatically decreased since the introduction of widespread screening by a vaginal smear test commonly known as the “Pap smear.” Cervical cancer usually grows slowly over many years. Detection of cervical cancer in its earliest stages is essential and lifesaving.
