Core Tip

Core tip: Ovarian tumors are common gynecological diseases in children, and 4 children with ovarian tumors were treated using a robotic surgical system in the Department of Pediatric Surgery of People's Liberation Army General Hospital. There are no reports available on the use of robotic surgery systems to treat ovarian tumors in children in China. We think that robotic-assisted resection of ovarian tumors in children is feasible and promising.
