and Obstetrics Surgery for Gynecologic Cancer
Comprehensive Gynecology and Obstetrica book is best seller in the market and loved by almost all the OBGYNE since Obstetrics is an evolving department for more than 2 decades so we hope this book is best field of gynecologic surgery has evolved in the last 2 decades—for example, the introduction of laparoscopic and robotic surgery and sentinel node biopsy. In Japan, that state of the art in gynecologic surgery was introduced slowly, carefully, and gradually because our history of gynecologic oncology has been based on gynecologic pathology, not surgery. However we also have the notable history of developing radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer.

Minimally invasive surgery also started in the field of reproductive medicine, not gynecologic oncology, in 1970 in Japan. It has been prudent, therefore, for gynecologic oncologists in Japan to introduce minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in their field.
Some gynecologic oncologists made a great effort to popularize MIS, so the Japanese national health insurance system eventually started to cover the surgery for endometrial cancer at an early stage and, in 2018, radical hysterectomy for early-stage cervical cancer as well.
