Advancements in technology have allowed for better options when it comes to gynecological treatments. Chief among these is the option for Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery for Gynecology.
While other types of minimally invasive surgical procedures have been in use since the late 1980s, the da Vinci Surgical System is the first robotic-assisted model. Approved by the FDA in the year 2000, the da Vinci System has been used in more than 3 million procedures. Having been adopted into routine practice in all top-ranked hospitals in all 50 United States and 64 countries worldwide, it is the forerunner for minimally invasive surgical operations.
The da Vinci Surgical System requires just a few small incisions, and features a magnified 3D high-definition view for the surgeon. Tiny, wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand, are inserted into the area of concern. The particular dexterity of these instruments enable your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control. da Vinci technology translates your surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, precise movements using the instruments inside your body. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System at all times.
Women’s Cancer and Surgical Care, P.C. is a proud user of the da Vinci system and we believe this technique has many benefits over traditional surgical procedures. Depending on the specific area being treated these benefits can include:
- Decreased Complication Rate
- Faster Recovery
- Shorter Hospital Stay
- Less Blood Loss
- Lower Readmission Rate
- Reduced Post-Surgical Pain
While not all patients are candidates for minimally invasive procedures such as the da Vinci method, we try to use it whenever possible. Our doctors have many years of training and experience. They make every effort to ensure your surgical procedure is the least invasive, painful, and successful as possible.
