Gynecological Robotic Options
Surgeons can use the da Vinci Surgical System to perform a minimally invasive hysterectomies on women who would normally require an open procedure, giving them the benefits of:
- quicker recovery
- fewer complications
- reduced pain
Additionally, the da Vinci has applications for other less common gynecologic surgeries including:
- myomectomies (surgical removal of fibroid tumors which leaves the uterine intact)
- abdominal sacrocolpopexies (surgical correction of vaginal vault prolapse, or falling)
- surgeries to treat cervical and endometrial cancers
Like all new technology, robotic surgery is not appropriate for all patients. For more information about gynecologic surgery applications for the da Vinci Surgical System, call 770-219-3840.
