Abstract

Minimally invasive technology, especially robotics, is gaining widespread acceptance and is becoming the standard approach for the treatment of both benign and malignant gynecologic conditions in centers across the country. However, there are challenges on a systems-based level to the implementation of a robotic program. Prominent among the concerns is the length of the learning curve, team-building, quality of life, and financial and various organizational challenges. The purpose of this review article is to address those challenges as milestones on the progress to a successful robotics program and explore possible solutions.
