Robotic Assisted
Gynecologic Surgery

When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. These include, but are not limited to, cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and menorrhagia or excessive bleeding.

Less invasive options for surgery are available. A woman’s age, health history, surgical history and diagnosis (benign or cancerous), all factor into the recommended course of action.  For complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the robot can operate with greater precision, minimize pain and reduce the likelihood of complications after surgery enabling a faster recovery.

Conditions treated robotically include:

  • cervical and uterine cancers
  • uterine fibroids
  • uterine prolapse
  • excessive bleeding
  • endometriosis
  •  ovarian cysts
  • Tubaligation

***New cutting edge treatment available in gynecology called single site robotic surgery provides patients with scar-less cosmetic results. Ask your surgeon if you are a candidate for single site.
