Aim
The objective of this study was to assess the clinical effectiveness of robotic surgery for obese patients (body mass index (BMI) ≥ 30 kg/m2) with early stage endometrial cancer.

Material and methods
This study is a retrospective review of women who underwent robotic surgery for early-stage endometrial cancer from 2008 to 2017. Patients were subdivided into those with BMI < 30 kg/m2 (group 1), and those with BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2 (group 2). Basic demographics and perioperative period outcomes were extracted from the medical records and compared.

Results
Group 1 included fifty patients and group 2 included 24 patients. There were no significant differences in surgical outcomes or complication rates between the two groups (p > 0.05 for all). There were no differences in pelvic nodal counts or length of stay.

Conclusions
Robotic surgery was found to be feasible and safe for obese patients with endometrial cancer. Its widespread application needs a larger sample with longer follow-up.
