The da Vinci is a minimally invasive surgical system that allows your provider to perform procedures like hysterectomy and fibroid removal with the help of highly advanced robotics.
During surgery with the da Vinci system, your provider is always completely in control of all movements and can see the surgical area (the interior of your body) in 3-D and high definition on a nearby monitor. Your doctor performs the surgery using specialized instruments that can bend and rotate with a far greater range of motion than the human hand.
Instruments are carefully guided via a special console and the da Vinci system translates your provider’s movements at the console in real-time. Your doctor inserts the surgical equipment and the camera for viewing through just one or a few small incisions.
Advanced OB/GYNE Associates commonly performs a number of procedures with the da Vinci system, such as:
When necessary, the team Advanced OB/GYNE Associates can effectively treat multiple gynecologic conditions with da Vinci surgery, such as severe pelvic pain, fibroids, abnormal bleeding, endometriosis, pelvic organ prolapse, and gynecologic cancers.
With da Vinci surgery, recovery is much shorter and easier than it would be with open surgery. In fact, many women only spend a night or two in the hospital after a surgery like hysterectomy. Some da Vinci surgeries can even be completed as outpatient procedures.
Since your incisions are very small, there’s usually minimal wound care and a faster healing process. If you keep the incisions clean and dry and closely follow all the instructions given to you by your Advanced OB/GYNE provider, you should be able to get back to your regular routine within a week or two. How quickly you recover depends on the specifics of your surgery and your overall health.
Compared to traditional open surgery, da Vinci surgery offers several valuable advantages, such as:
The impressive da Vinci surgery system is one of the first robotic-assisted, minimally invasive surgical systems to be cleared by the FDA.
