In brief: In rare early stages
In very early stage cervical cancer in patients who are seeking preserve fertility a gyn oncologist will remove only the cervix (trachelectomy).
In later stages of cervical cancer a hysterectomy is not done and the cancer is treated with chemotherapy and radiation. Survival is possible in both cases.

In brief: Yes if it is early
If cervical cancer is at its earliest stage, 1a, then it is possible to only do a conization to remove the abnormal cells.
If it has progressed beyond this a hysterectomy is needed.
