Gynecologic Robotic Surgery

Surgeons can use the da Vinci Surgical System to perform minimally invasive gynecologic procedures including:

  • Hysterectomies (single incision in some instances*)
  • 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

What is robotic surgery and how can it help me?

Robotic surgery, utilizing the da Vinci Surgical System, is a less invasive technique than what is referred to as “open” surgery. With robotic surgery, the incisions made in your body by your surgeon are much smaller than the cut made during open surgery. Benefits of robotic surgery compared to open surgery include:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less need for narcotic pain medicine
  • A faster recovery
  • Smaller incisions associated with minimal scarring

Like all new technology, robotic surgery is not appropriate for all patients.
