Dr. Kimberly Levinson Discusses New Findings in Gynecologic Surgery Study
Two studies, recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine, could change the way surgeons approach treatment. Research showed that the type of surgery a woman has can affect her ability to survive cervical cancer. The studies compared the same radical hysterectomy operation, which is the standard treatment for cervical cancer, performed both as open surgery and as a minimally invasive procedure.
Dr. Kimberly Levinson, associate director of Gynecologic Oncology at GBMC, explains the studies’ findings.
