da Vinci Robotics for Gynecology Surgery & Procedures
When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve your symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions.
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; however, significant pain, a long recovery process and threat to surrounding organs and nerves can accompany open surgery.
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.
We are very proud to offer several gynecological procedures utilizing our da Vinci robotic surgery system. Helping women to get the treatment and relief they need with less pain and short recovery times. At Garnet Health, our expert team of robotic surgeons perform gynecological robotic surgery for the following conditions:
- Excessive menstrual bleeding
- Uterine fibroids
- Uterine prolapse
Robotic Oophorectomy Surgery
If your doctor recommends an Oophorectomy, the surgical removal of an ovary or ovaries, you may be a candidate for a Robotic Oophorectomy, one of the most effective, least invasive treatment options. Robotic Oophorectomy is performed using the da Vinci Si HD Surgical System, and enables surgeons to perform with precision and control - using only a few small incisions.
Robotic Oophorectomy offers numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal Oophorectomy, particularly when performing more challenging procedures for gynecologic cancer. Potential benefits include:
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Less scarring
- A shorter hospital stay
- A faster return to normal daily activities
Robotic Oophorectomy also allows your surgeon better visualization of anatomy, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder. This means that surgeons have a distinct advantage when performing an Oophorectomy involving adhesions from prior pelvic surgery or non-localized cancer, or an abdominal hysterectomy.
