Minimally invasive approaches to pediatric cancer surgery are increasingly used, not only for the benefits of smaller incisions, but also for better field visualization and precise dissection. Advances in technology and surgeon experience have facilitated this trend. However, the appropriate indications for its use remain to be determined, and oncologic principles should not be compromised. We discuss the current and potential future uses, and new technologies that are being developed and introduced to assist with and enhance the role of minimally invasive surgery in the management of children with cancer.
