Minimally invasive robotic surgery shortens your recovery time from procedures such as a hysterectomy. At The Guirguis Obstetrics & Gynecology Group, the skilled OB/GYNS have expertise in da VinciⓇ robotic surgery, a state-of-the-art alternative to open surgery that resolves some types of pelvic organ dysfunction. If you’re a woman living in Park Slope, Bay Ridge, or Staten Island, New York, and would like more information about da Vinci surgery as an option, call one of the offices or book a consultation online.
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.
Using da Vinci surgery offers a number of advantages as compared to traditional open surgery. These include:
Discuss the option of the da Vinci system for your upcoming gynecological surgery with your surgeon from The Guirguis Obstetrics & Gynecology Group.
The da Vinci technology can be used on a variety of gynecological surgeries. These include procedures to address:
Hysterectomy, myomectomy, and endometriosis resection are just a few gynecological surgeries available.
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.
