A review of available direct and indirect scientific reports strongly suggests that subspecialty training increases the likelihood that the appropriate surgical procedure will be completed in women operated on for gynecologic cancer. It is likely that specialty care lessens the costs associated with diagnosis, treatment and surveillance, and frequently improves survival.
