Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery

Many gynecologic surgeries are performed by laparoscopy and the use of several small incisions in the abdomen, which is generally referred to as minimally invasive surgery. This means performing surgeries such as hysterectomy, fibroid removal, correction of endometriosis or ovarian cysts, treatment of adhesions and uterine prolapse can be treated with only 3-5 small incisions, approximately a half inch each, on your abdomen instead of one large, open incision.

The addition of the surgical robot allows gynecologic surgeons to perform even more complex and difficult surgeries, including large uterine cysts and fibroids, more difficult endometriosis and adhesions with the same small incisions. In robotic surgery, the surgeon operates the instruments connected to the robot. The surgical robot does not do anything on its own.
