Da Vinci Surgery Q & A

What is da Vinci robotic surgery?

Traditional gynecological surgeries required large cuts through your skin and muscles to reach your internal organs. Surgery with the da Vinci robotic system uses advanced tools to eliminate the need for major incisions. 

The FDA-approved da Vinci surgical system enables your OBGYN CARE doctor to perform minimally invasive surgery using a set of robotic surgical instruments and a 3D high-definition view of your treatment area.

Your OBGYN CARE doctor may recommend da Vinci surgery for a variety of issues, including endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, ovarian cancer, pelvic reconstruction, and pelvic organ prolapse. The surgery is often used to perform hysterectomies.

How does da Vinci surgery compare to traditional surgery?

Compared to traditional open surgery, da Vinci surgery offers the following benefits:

  • Smaller incisions and scars
  • Less pain
  • Less bleeding
  • Shorter stay in the hospital
  • More rapid recovery time
  • Lower risk of infection

After robot-assisted surgery, you may be able to bounce back more quickly and return to all of your regular activities sooner than with a traditional surgery.

Which conditions does da Vinci surgery treat?

The doctors at OBGYN CARE tailor your surgical treatment to your health, medical history, and other factors. However, they generally recommend da Vinci surgery for several common gynecologic conditions:

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is an often painful condition where your uterine lining grows outside of your uterus. The endometrial growths are removed to help relieve your symptoms.

Pelvic organ prolapse

Prolapse is a condition where your uterus or other organ drops out of position. Prolapse is caused by weakened support tissues or muscles around your uterus. 

Uterine fibroids

Fibroids are noncancerous growths on your uterus that cause bleeding, pain, and other symptoms. During surgery, the fibroids are removed while leaving your uterus intact.

Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy is a common procedure to remove your uterus and sometimes the ovaries and fallopian tubes, too. A da Vinci hysterectomy requires smaller incisions, potentially offering a quicker recovery and less pain.

Robotic surgery offers many advantages over traditional surgery to treat the most common women's health conditions. Find out whether this form of minimally invasive surgery is right for your medical condition by calling OBGYN CARE or booking a consultation online.
