Traditional, open gynecologic surgery uses a large incision to enter or access the uterus and the surrounding anatomy of the female reproductive system. While this has been the standard approach to gynecologic surgery for many years, it has many drawbacks, including significant pain, a long recovery process and possible damage to surrounding organs and nerves.
Now, there is a minimally invasive option for many gynecologic surgery patients at The Medical Center of Aurora.
For complex hysterectomies (removal of the uterus) 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 incisions, surgeons 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.
Conditions We Treat Using Robotic GYN Surgery
Ask your doctor if da Vinci Robotic Surgery is an option for your gynecologic surgery. Not all patients are candidates for robot-assisted surgery; your doctor will consider your health history and current condition when assessing robotic surgery as a treatment option.
