Brief Summary:
The goal of this clinical research study is to compare the long-term outcomes of different surgical methods for the treatment of cervical cancer. The long-term outcome of a total abdominal radical hysterectomy (TARH) will be compared against laparoscopy. In this study, the laparoscopy will be done with or without robotic technology.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: 1
Total Abdominal Radical Hysterectomy
Procedure: Total Abdominal Radical Hysterectomy
In a radical hysterectomy the uterus, the upper one to two centimetres of the vagina and the soft tissues around the cervix are excised.
Other Names:
  • TARH
  • Open radical hysterectomy

Experimental: 2
Total Laparoscopic or Robotic Radical Hysterectomy
Procedure: Total Laparoscopic or Robotic Radical Hysterectomy
In a radical hysterectomy the uterus, the upper one to two centimetres of the vagina and the soft tissues around the cervix are excised.
Other Names:
  • TLRH
  • TRRH
  • Keyhole radical hysterectomy

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Disease free survival [ Time Frame: 5 years from surgery ]
    Compare treatment equivalence

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Patterns of recurrence [ Time Frame: 5 years from surgery ]
    date and localization of 1st recurrence as confirmed histologically - Compare patterns between groups

  2. Costs [ Time Frame: 6 months from surgery ]
    Compare costs between groups

  3. Quality of life Questionnaires [ Time Frame: 6 months from surgery ]
    Compare QoL between groups

  4. Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory Questionnaire [ Time Frame: 5 years from surgery ]
    Compare PFDI between groups

  5. Overall survival [ Time Frame: 5 years from surgery ]
    Compare between groups

  6. Feasibility of sentinel lymph node biopsy [ Time Frame: Intra-operatively ]
    Compare between groups

  7. Intra-operative, peri-operative, post-operative and long term treatment related morbidity [ Time Frame: 6 months from surgery ]
    Compare these between groups
