Minimal invasive surgery has completely transformed the surgical practice over the last few decades with numerous benefits for patients and healthcare organizations. These advantages are especially profound in robot-assisted surgery which involves a more ergonomic approach for the surgeon and also eliminates the tremor and improves dexterity. In this review we explore the latest developments regarding the use of robot-assisted surgery in the field of gynecological oncology. In more detail, robot-assisted surgery is already established as the method of choice in treating uterine cancer and newer data show that it plays an important role in the group of patients undergoing interval debulking surgery for ovarian cancer, as a growing number of surgeons perform this operation with the use of the robot. The role of robotic surgery in the group of patients with advanced ovarian cancer undergoing primary maximal effort cytoreductive surgery is still controversial, mainly due to the risk of surgical upstaging and limited views of the peritoneal surfaces. Finally, minimal invasive surgery is currently not routinely utilized in the treatment of cervical cancer; however, this might change in the near future when newer data are published.
