Gynecologic Robotic 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. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Cervical and uterine cancer
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Menorrhagia or excessive bleeding

Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has for many years been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures. Yet open surgery can produce significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process and threat to surrounding organs and nerves. For women facing gynecologic surgery, the period of pain, discomfort and extended time away from normal daily activities that usually follows traditional surgery can understandably cause significant anxiety.

Fortunately, less invasive options are available. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the The da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.

Hysterectomies

Hysterectomies are the second most common surgical procedure in the United States and are used to treat a wide variety of uterine conditions. The majority of hysterectomies are performed using a 6-12 inch abdominal incision. Robotic surgery offers surgeons unmatched dexterity and visibility of the surrounding anatomy through incisions that are only 1-2 cm in length.

Myomectomies

A myomectomy is an alternative to a hysterectomy in the treatment of uterine fibroids for women who wish to preserve the uterus in hope of later becoming pregnant. After cutting around and removing each fibroid, the surgeon must then repair the uterine wall. Robotic laparoscopic myomectomies are proving to be successful for even complex procedures, regardless of size or location of fibroids, including surgery that requires complete reconstruction of the uterine wall.

Sacrocolpopexy

Sacrocolpopexy is a procedure that uses soft synthetic mesh to support pelvic organs that have slipped out of their normal positions (called prolapse). More than 120,000 women have surgery for uterine and vaginal vault prolapse each year in the United States.
