Title

Local tumor response and healing in robotic gynecologic cancer surgery.

Status

Open

Project Description

The Behbakht and McCarter labs are developing a joint project to evaluate the local peritoneal environment changes in response to robotic and minimally invasive surgeries.  It has been remarked that patients that undergo robotic surgery heal much faster than those that undergo open surgery, even after considering the presence of the incision.  We hypothesize that manual handling of tissue in open surgery had detrimental effects on the local immune environment, negatively influencing healing, and that these effects are nor present in minimally invasive or robotic equivalent surgeries.
