Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery
Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures for many years. However, open surgery can cause significant pain, physical trauma and a long recovery process. For women facing gynecologic surgery, the period of pain, discomfort and extended time away from normal daily activities that usually follows traditional surgery can also cause significant anxiety.
The da Vinci® Surgical System allows GYN surgeons to perform more complex operations through just a few tiny incisions, minimizing the need to perform traditional abdominal surgery. As a result, da Vinci GYN surgeons can offer the benefits of minimally invasive surgery to a broader range of patients. Potential patient benefits include:
- Shorter hospital stay
- Significantly less post-operative pain
- Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
- Fewer complications and less risk of infection
- Less scarring
To the women receiving open surgery, da Vinci Surgery represents a significant advancement in gynecological care and treatment.
Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure. Talk with your doctor about these risks to find out if robotic surgery is right for you.
