Objective: To show the safety, feasibility, and perioperative outcomes of total TELELAP ALF-X hysterectomy (SOFAR S.p. A., ALF-X Surgical Robotics Department, Trezzano Rosa, Milan, Italy). Design: Phase II study (Canadian Task Force II-2). Setting: Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Rome, Italy. Patients: From October 2013 to May 2014, 80 women underwent total TELELAP ALF-X hysterectomy. The study population was divided into 2 groups according to surgical procedures: total hysterectomy ± bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (group 1) and endometrial cancer patients staged with pelvic lymphadenectomy (group 2). Interventions: Total TELELAP ALF-X hysterectomy ± bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy with or without pelvic lymphadenectomy. Measurements and Main Results: The median age was 51 years (range, 48-79), and the median body mass index was 24 kg/m2 (range, 17.3-34.2). Forty-five patients (56.2%) had previous surgery. The median operative time was 140 minutes (range, 58-320) in group 1 and 197 minutes (range, 129-290) in group 2 (p
