Robotic-Assisted Gynecologic 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.
Fortunately, less invasive options are available. Some gynecologic procedures enable surgeons to access the target anatomy using a vaginal approach, which may not require an external incision. But for complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci 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.
- Procedure to treat the lining tissue of the uterine cavity to decrease heavy bleeding without the need for hysterectomy
Tubal Occlusion Procedure (Adiana or Essure):
- Blockage of the fallopian tubes by inserting a device into the tubal openings through the cervix and into the uterus. These procedures may be done in our office under local anesthesia.
- Procedure to evaluate and treat problems in the cavity of the uterus
Laparoscopy/Da Vinci Robotic surgery:
- Outpatient surgery for many gynecologic problems such as endometriosis and ovarian cysts. Now with the Da Vinci robotic laparoscopy, more extensive surgeries such as myomectomy (uterine fibroid removal) can be done as outpatient procedures in some cases.
- Removal of uterine fibroids with conservation of the uterus. This may be done with a DaVinci robotic procedure or may in some cases require an open procedure.
