da Vinci® Gynecologic Surgery

When medication and noninvasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. These include, but are not limited to, cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and menorrhagia or excessive bleeding.

With da Vinci® robotic surgical technology − available at Saint Agnes − gynecologic surgeons are now able to perform complex procedures, including (removal of the uterus), myomectomy (removal of fibroid tumors), and sacrocolpopexy (correction of vaginal and uterine prolapse), using a minimally invasive approach.

 

Traditional open gynecologic surgery uses a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy. With open surgery comes the risk of significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process, and threat to surrounding organs and nerves.

With the da Vinci® Surgical System, surgeons are able to perform delicate and complex operations through a few tiny 1-2 cm incisions minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
