The da Vinci Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, by putting a surgeon’s hands at the controls of a robotic platform. Robotic surgery enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with extreme precision. The da Vinci Surgical System allows for enhanced visualization of the surgery site and greater surgical precision.
Our OB/GYN department currently performs laparoscopic hysterectomy and other advanced laparoscopic pelvic surgeries using the da Vinci surgical system. You and your physician will discuss whether your surgery is well suited for the da Vinci surgical system or whether a traditional laparoscopy should be performed.
The da Vinci Surgical System allows for minimally invasive surgery for patients that would otherwise need traditional open surgery. Recovery times for da Vinci patients are much shorter, with lower infection rates and a faster return to work. Additional benefits include smaller incisions, less blood loss, decreased post operative pain, short hospital stay and less scarring.
