When medication, non-invasive procedures or life style changes don’t resolve gynecological problems, surgery is often the next option. With traditional open gynecological surgery the surgeon makes a large incision, allowing access the uterus and surrounding anatomy. This major surgery is very disruptive to a women’s life and recovery can be painful and slow.
The da Vinci Surgical System, offers the least invasive treatment option. Working through tiny, 1 to 2 cm incisions, specially trained surgeons can perform detailed gynecological surgeries previously only possible with traditional surgery. Robotic-assisted surgery provides women with the potential for a quicker, less painful recovery process.
Da Vinci may be an option for many gynecological surgeries including hysterectomy, myomectomy (the removal of uterine fibroids), removal of ovarian masses and some cancer treatments.
