da Vinci Robotic Surgery Q & A
What is da Vinci robotic surgery?
The da VinciⓇ Surgical System allows the doctors at The Guirguis Obstetrics & Gynecology Group to perform complex procedures through just a few small incisions.
The da Vinci technology includes a magnified, 3D high-definition vision system that gives the doctors a superior view inside these incisions. The system also features tiny, wristed instruments that have better dexterity than the human hand, allowing for greater precision than traditional instrumentation.
The doctors are in complete control of the da Vinci system at all times; the technology simply translates their hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of the tiny instruments that are inserted into your body.
What are the advantages of da Vinci surgery?
Using da Vinci surgery offers a number of advantages as compared to traditional open surgery. These include:
- Faster recovery
- Shorter hospital stays
- Less need for postsurgical medications
- Minimal scarring and blood loss
- Fewer surgical complications
Discuss the option of the da Vinci system for your upcoming gynecological surgery with your surgeon from The Guirguis Obstetrics & Gynecology Group.
What types of surgeries can be performed using the da Vinci system?
The da Vinci technology can be used on a variety of gynecological surgeries. These include procedures to address:
- Pelvic pain
- Pelvic prolapse
- Abnormal uterine bleeding
Hysterectomy, myomectomy, and endometriosis resection are just a few gynecological surgeries available.
How is a hysterectomy performed with da Vinci technology?
If your doctor recommended a hysterectomy for a reason other than cancer, they can perform the procedure using da Vinci technology and a single, small cut in your belly button. If the hysterectomy is recommended due to a cancer diagnosis, the da Vinci technology can still be used, but through several small incisions in your abdomen.
Both approaches have similar outcomes to traditional open surgery, but with less pain, quicker recovery, and minimal blood loss.
If your doctor at The Guirguis Obstetrics & Gynecology Group recommended gynecological surgery to resolve pelvic symptoms, learn how the da Vinci system can minimize the trauma of the event.
