In brief: Depends
Treatment depends on the stage of the cervical cancer.
In general, for earlier stages surgery is often performed as the primary treatment and for more advanced cases radiation and chemotherapy are used together. The radiation typically includes external beam radiation as well as brachytherapy.

...on the stage and other factors, my friend.
Surgery is done if early, but sometimes radiation and/or chemo are used.
