With the ability to perform numerous procedures with greater precision, flexibility and control, robotic surgery or robot-assisted surgery is at the forefront of the surgical profession and holds significant promise for even the most complex of cases. Currently, robotic surgery is associated with minimally invasive procedures and offers benefits such as less blood and scarring, reduced risk of infection and faster recovery times. Using miniaturized instruments and devices that are under the direction of the physician, robot-assisted surgery allows physicians to carry out delicate surgeries with greater dexterity and range of motion.
For gynecologic conditions that affect one’s health and quality of life such as pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, endometriosis, fibroids, cancer or pelvic prolapse, robotic surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System has changed the surgical experience of millions of women around the world. Given the long recovery times associated with open gynecologic surgery, the revolutionary approach of robot-assisted surgery provides patients with a smooth and comfortable experience and a quicker return to activity.
The da Vinci Surgical System
As a state of the art robotic operating system, the da Vinci Surgical System is a welcome technology for the treatment of gynecologic problems such as hysterectomy and ovarian cancer surgery. What’s more is that the precision of the da Vinci System allows for even the most complicated procedures to be performed with success. These include radical hysterectomy for gynecologic cancer and sacrocolpopexy for pelvic organ prolapse.
The da Vinci Surgical System is comprised of two interactive robotic arms, a camera, three-dimensional (3D) image processing system and a remote control unit. Every movement is guided and manipulated by the primary physician. Yet, a second surgeon is located next to the operating table, and assists in exchanging instruments on the robotic arms.
When it comes to robotic hysterectomies using the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons are provided better visualization of a patient’s anatomy, as well as the ability to dissect and remove lymph nodes or adhesions while navigating around delicate structures.
