For cervical cancer patients, less invasive surgery is worse for survival
A treatment for early stage cervical cancer that has rapidly gained acceptance in the United States turns out to be worse than standard surgery, according to two studies.

This technique has been growing in popularity since 2006 and has been widely adopted.
