Da Vinci® Robotic Gynecologic and Hysterectomy Surgery
At the forefront of cutting-edge robotic surgery, Winthrop-University Hospital on Long Island, NY proudly features the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System, an advanced, minimally invasive alternative to traditional, complex gynecologic procedures.
When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms of gynecologic conditions, robotic surgery is chosen as a high-performance minimally invasive treatment. Surgeons are using da Vinci robotic gynecologic surgery to significantly reduce the amount of post-operative pain and wound complications, while simultaneously providing superior cosmetic results.
Benefits of Da Vinci Robotic Gynecologic Surgery
Traditional open surgery for gynecologic conditions involves making large incisions for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy. For many years, these painful and complicated procedures have been the standard approach, often resulting in extreme pain and discomfort, trauma, threat to the surrounding organs and nerves, large incision scars and a lengthy recovery process. These debilitating side effects can prevent women from resuming normal daily activities for a longer time which can cause considerable anxiety.
On Long Island, Winthrop-University Hospital’s Division of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery is committed to providing women with the most advanced procedures with the best outcomes. With da Vinci robotic surgery, a wide spectrum of gynecologic operations can be performed through small abdominal and/or vaginal incisions, allowing for rapid recovery time and quicker return to daily activities.
Da Vinci robotic gynecologic surgery is the most advanced and least invasive treatment option available. The major benefits of this cutting-edge technology may include:
- Shorter hospital stay
- Less blood loss
- Fewer transfusions
- Fewer complications
- Faster recovery
- Less need for narcotic pain medicine
- Smaller incisions for minimal scarring
Gynecologic Conditions Treated with Da Vinci
Da Vinci robotic gynecologic surgery effectively treats the following conditions:
- Cervical cancer
- Uterine cancer
- Uterine fibroids
- Vaginal and uterine prolapse
- Menorrhagia or excessive bleeding
Da Vinci Robotic Hysterectomy Surgery
For gynecologic conditions resulting in the need for a hysterectomy, the da Vinci System is the #1 choice for minimally invasive hysterectomies in the United States.
During da Vinci robotic hysterectomy surgery, surgeons can operate through a few small incisions or one small incision in the belly button. The da Vinci System provides your surgeon with a 3D high-definition view inside of your body, and special wristed instruments which bend and rotate with more flexibility than the human wrist. Your doctor has complete control of the robotic system, which accurately translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements inside your body. As a result, your surgeon can operate with enhanced vision, precision and control.
