Pelvic and Para-Aortic Lymph Node Dissection

During a pelvic and para-aortic lymph node dissection, the surgeon removes lymph nodes from the pelvis and the area next to the aorta to see if they contain cancer cells that may have spread from an endometrial tumor. This is performed in open, minimally invasive laparoscopic or robotic surgery.
