Women's Hospital Robotic Surgery

Several robotic surgical procedures are available at the NMMC Women's Hospital to treat gynecologic conditions including uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and menorrhagia or excessive bleeding. The most common procedure using the da Vinci Si surgical system is robotic hysterectomy.

Robotic hysterectomy offers numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal hysterectomy, particularly when performing more challenging procedures.

Robotic hysterectomy also allows the surgeon better visualization of anatomy, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder.

Additional Robotic Procedures

In addition to robotic hysterectomy, surgeons at the NMMC Women's Hospital also perform:

  • Myomectomy to remove uterine fibroids
  • Sacrocolpoplexy to repair pelvic prolapse
  • Tubal anastomosis (reversal)l to facilitate pregnancy

Benefits to the patient include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • And in many cases, better clinical outcomes

 
Benefits to the surgeon include:

  • 3-D Visualization. Provides the surgeon with a true three-dimensional view of the operating field. This direct and natural hand-eye instrument alignment is similar to open surgery with “all around” vision and the ability to zoom in and zoom out.
  • Dexterity. Instinctive operative controls make complex minimally invasive surgery procedures feel more like open surgery than laparoscopic surgery.
  • Surgical precision
  • Access. Surgeons perform complex surgical maneuvers through 8-mm ports, eliminating the need for large traumatic incisions.
  • Range of motion. Surgeons have the ability to rotate instruments more than 360 degrees through tiny incisions.
