daVinci Surgery

My Women's Center

Da Vinci surgery, also known as robotic surgery or computer assisted surgery is an amazing technological advance to allow more cases to be done thru small incisions. The advantage to the patient includes, less pain, less blood loss, less risk of infection, shorter hospital stay, quicker recovery and return to normal activities. The advantage to the physician is 3D vision with magnified view, articulation of the instrument in all directions - mimics the physician's wrist movements, can operate in a comfortable position, makes stitching much easier and more precise, and . . . it is fun! All these features allow complex procedures to be done through a few tiny openings.

The most common uses for the da Vinci Surgical System in our practice is for:

  • Hysterectomy - removal of the uterus and cervix especially if the uterus is large or other pathology is present, such as scar tissue, endometriosis or prolapse.
  • Myomectomy - removal of fibroids from the uterus. This procedure involves a lot of precise suturing which the da Vinci allows for.
  • Sacralcolpopexy - lifting the apex of the vagina up by attaching the vaginal walls to mesh that is then tacked to the sacrum. This is for patients with prolapse issues.

Our group is one of very few using the da Vinci routinely for difficult cases to help our patients recover quicker with less pain and get back to their usual activities faster. We are dedicated to, "helping women achieve a healthier, more active lifestyle."

HYSTERECTOMY

If your doctor recommends a hysterectomy, the surgical removal of the uterus, you may be a candidate for an innovative, less invasive surgical procedure called da Vinci Hysterectomy.

The da Vinci Hysterectomy uses a state-of-the art surgical system designed to perform the most precise and least invasive hysterectomy available today. For most women, da Vinci Hysterectomy offers numerous potential benefits over traditional surgical approaches, including:

-Significantly less pain

-Less blood loss and need for transfusion

-Less risk of infection

-Shorter hospital stay

-Quicker recovery and return to normal activities

-Small incisions for minimal scarring

-Better outcomes and patient satisfaction, in many cases.

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is patient- and procedure-specific.

  • MYOMECTOMY

A common alternative to hysterectomy for fibroids is myomectomy, the surgical removal of fibroid tumors and a procedure considered standard of-care for removing fibroids and preserving the uterus. This procedure may be recommended for women who wish to become pregnant.

If your doctor recommends surgery to treat uterine fibroids, you may be a candidate for a uterine-preserving, minimally invasive procedure –da Vinci Myomectomy. Using the most advanced technology available, da Vinci Myomectomy enables surgeons to perform this delicate operation with unmatched precision, vision and control

using only a few small incisions.  Together, da Vinci technology allows your

doctor to perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings. As a result,

you may be able to get back to life faster without the usual recovery following major surgery.

The da Vinci System has been used successfully worldwide in hundreds of thousands of procedures to date. For women who want a uterine-sparing procedure, da Vinci Myomectomy offers numerous potential benefits over open abdominal surgery, including:

-Significantly less pain

-Less blood loss and need for blood transfusions

-Shorter hospital stay

-Faster recovery and quicker return to normal activities

-Less scarring

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is patient- and procedure-specific.
