Da Vinci Robotic Surgery Q & A

What is da Vinci robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery offers patients a minimally invasive way to treat surgical conditions, allowing  patients to recuperate more quickly than traditional large-incision surgery.

Elite Women’s Care has credentialed and experienced gynecologic robotic surgeons. They use the da Vinci system to perform minimally invasive surgery. With your doctor’s skill and the precision of the robotic device, only small incisions are made, causing less trauma to the body compared to open-incision surgeries.

 

What can da Vinci robotic surgery treat?

Numerous gynecological procedures can be performed with the da Vinci surgical system,  including:

  • Hysterectomy
  • Repair of pelvic organ prolapse
  • Treatment for endometriosis
  • Treatment for cervical cancer
  • Removal of uterine fibroids

 

When you have a consultation with your surgeon, your condition and needs are discussed thoroughly to help you make the right decision for you.

 

How does da Vinci robotic surgery work?

Da Vinci robotic surgery consists of a three-part system that includes image processing equipment, multiple robotic arms, and a console that serves as the command center.

The surgeons at Elite Women’s Care are highly trained in the use of the robotic arms, which requires operating one arm holding a laparoscope, camera, and lighting and the other arms holding surgical instruments. 

Your surgeon at Elite Women’s Care views the surgical site through a 3D high-definition monitor, wearing hand and fingertip controls to transmit movements to motions performed by the robotic arms. With this technology, your doctor can see inside your body without opening it.

The surgeons at the practice have extensive training and experience with the da Vinci surgical system, providing you with the best outcome possible.

 

What are the advantages of da Vinci robotic surgery?

With da Vinci robotic surgery, the advantages and health benefits are significant. They include:

  • Quicker recovery
  • Less bleeding
  • Less pain
  • Minimal scarring

 

The robotic arms are smaller than a human hand, making it easy to get in tight areas in your body. A considerable advantage is minimal trauma to the surrounding tissues. In addition, robotic surgery offers considerably less time spent in the hospital compared to open surgery.
