DaVinci Robotic Surgery
Traditionally, gynecologic surgery has been a fairly invasive, involved means for restoring women’s health -- but it doesn’t always have to be. DaVinci Robotic Assisted Surgery is a minimally-invasive option that can treat a number of common conditions, including:
- Cervical cancer
- Uterine cancer
- Prolapsed uterus
- Uterine fibroids
- Excessive bleeding
The DaVinci Surgery offers a number of advantages compared to traditional procedures, including less pain, fewer related complications and a much faster recovery time.
Surgery is usually only chosen when other treatment options, like medication and non-surgical methods have been tried but were unsuccessful. Anyone who’s had a traditional surgery performed in a hospital setting knows the related trauma -- including a large incision, pain, anxiety and a long recovery period -- can sometimes be too much to bear. And for patients dealing with the added worry of a gynecologic condition, the associated trauma of traditional surgery often seems far too daunting to tolerate.
Fortunately, recent advances in the medical world have greatly enhanced our ability to perform surgical procedures. Some gynecologic procedures can be completed vaginally, meaning absolutely no incision is necessary. When that’s not possible, though, patients appreciate the effectiveness and accessibility of the DaVinci Surgical System.
The DaVinci Surgical System works pretty simply. Using tiny incisions (just about 1 to 2 centimeters each) the system allows your doctor access to the treatment area with greater precision and control -- minimizing your discomfort and decreasing your recovery time, too.
