Robotic Gynecologic Surgery

Robotic Gynecologic Surgery

When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions, including but not limited to, cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and menorrhagia or excessive bleeding.

For many years, traditional open gynecologic surgery, which uses a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures. Yet, with open surgery can come significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process and threat to surrounding organs and nerves.

Less invasive options are also available such as vaginally - with no external incision - or laparoscopically. While minimally invasive vaginal and laparoscopic hysterectomies offer obvious potential advantages to patients over open surgeries - including reduced risk for complications, a shorter hospitalization and faster recovery - there are inherent drawbacks. With vaginal surgeries, surgeons are challenged by a small working space and lack of view to the pelvic organs. With laparoscopic surgeries, surgeons may be limited in their dexterity and by 2D visualization, potentially reducing the surgeon's precision and control when compared with traditional abdominal surgery.

Fortunately, a new robot-assisted, minimally invasive option is now available that doesn't limit the surgeon's precision and control. With the da Vinci® Surgical System, the surgeon has unmatched precision and control - using only a few small 1-2 cm incisions. This minimizes the pain and risk associated with large incisions, while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.

While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci® System when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.

For additional information on minimally invasive surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System, contact us or call your doctor.
