da Vinci Robotic Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Surgery
Recent advancements in minimally invasive surgical technologies mean that today’s patients have a broader range of alternatives to conventional open surgery than patients did just 10 years ago. These advancements include the da Vinci surgical system, which is providing patients with new, minimally invasive surgical procedures that offer significant advantages over traditional “open” surgeries. These robotic assisted minimally invasive procedures can benefit patients with less pain, discomfort, blood loss and a quicker return to normal activities.
The da Vinci Surgical System
The da Vinci surgical system from Intuitive Surgical, Inc. enhances surgical capabilities, providing superior visualization, enhanced dexterity, greater precision and ergonomic comfort. As a result of these capabilities, surgeons can now perform even complex surgery using 1-2 cm incisions. This enables healthcare providers to offer a minimally invasive treatment option to the broadest possible range of patients.
Physicians are usually successful at treating a variety of gynecologic conditions, particularly those affecting the uterus with surgery. In spite of growing demand for minimally invasive procedures, the majority of these operations are still performed using large, abdominal incisions. These surgeries typically result in significant blood loss, and may mean several days in the hospital followed by weeks of recovery time.
Today, a less invasive surgical treatment option is available. If your doctor recommends surgery for your condition, you may be a candidate for one of three new, minimally invasive procedures – da Vinci® Hysterectomy, da Vinci Myomectomy and da Vinci Sacrocolpopexy.
These procedures use the state-of-the-art da Vinci Surgical System, designed to help your surgeon perform a more precise, less invasive procedure. For most patients, minimally invasive procedures performed with the da Vinci Surgical System can offer numerous potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:
- Shorter hospital stay
- Less pain and scarring
- Less risk of infection
- Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
- Faster recovery
- Quicker return to normal activities.
In addition, for women diagnosed with uterine fibroids, da Vinci Myomectomy (Fibroid removal) represents a minimally invasive surgical treatment designed to preserve the uterus.
As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is patient and procedure specific. To learn more about da Vinci Gynecologic Surgery, talk with your doctor and schedule a visit.
