Gynecologic Robotic Surgery
The da Vinci System is a robotic-assisted device that your surgeon is 100% in control of at all times.
The da Vinci System gives surgeons:
- A 3D HD view inside your body
- Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
- Enhanced vision, precision and control
da Vinci Hysterectomy offers the following potential benefits compared to traditional open surgery:
- Fewer complications
- Fewer blood transfusions
- Shorter length of stay
- Less estimated blood loss
- Surgery to remove the uterus is called a hysterectomy. It can be done with open surgery through one large incision (cut). It can also be done with minimally invasive surgery through a few small incisions using traditional laparoscopy or da Vinci Surgery.Traditionally 3-5 small incisions are needed to perform a hysterectomy either with traditional laparoscopy or with da Vinci Surgery.
- Single Site Hysterectomy
- When using da Vinci Single-Site* Surgery for benign (not cancer), your surgeon operates through a small incision in your belly button. Patients see almost scarless results, like single incision traditional laparoscopy. The flexible instruments of the robot, however, provide an advantage over traditional laparoscopy.
da Vinci Robot Stitches a Grape Back Together
- Endometriosis Resection
- Endometriosis happens when tissue that lines the inside of your uterus (endometrium) grows into areas outside the uterus. It can cause mild to severe pain, among other symptoms.
- Resection of Endometriosis can help reduce a patient’s pain, and this can be performed using da Vinci Surgery.
- If you plan to have surgery to remove fibroids, the operation is called a myomectomy. Your doctor will take out the fibroid(s) and keep your uterus in place.
- A myomectomy enables women to retain their uterus to preserve their fertility
- Most myomectomies are performed through open incision
- Conventional laparoscopy for myomectomy is very difficult to learn & perform
- da Vinci Surgery, however, Enables a minimally invasive surgical (MIS) approach
- Sacrocolpopexy (prolapse surgery)
- If your symptoms from pelvic prolapse are severe and affect your lifestyle, your doctor may recommend surgery. One type of prolapse surgery is a sacrocolpopexy. During the procedure, mesh is used to hold the affected pelvic organ(s) in their correct natural position.
- Sacrocolpopexy can also be performed after a hysterectomy and can provide long-term support for the vagina.
