Surgery with Da Vinci Robotic Assist
For many years, the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures has been accessng the uterus and surrounding anatomy through a large abdominal incision. Traditional open surgery is often accompanied by a long recovery process, pain, and risk to surrounding organs. For women facing gynecologic surgery, the period of pain, discomfort and extended time away from normal daily activities can understandably cause significant anxiety.
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® Robotic Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons 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.
