Da Vinci Robotics for Gynecology Surgery & Procedures
When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve your symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions.
Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has, for many years, been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures; however, significant pain, a long recovery process and threat to surrounding organs and nerves can accompany open surgery.
For women facing gynecologic surgery, the period of pain, discomfort and extended time away from normal daily activities that usually follows traditional surgery can understandably cause significant anxiety.
We are very proud to offer several gynecological procedures utilizing our da Vinci robotic surgery system. Helping women to get the treatment and relief they need with less pain and short recovery times. At Orange Regional Medical Center, our expert team of robotic surgeons perform gynecological robotic surgery for the following conditions:
- Excessive menstrual bleeding
- Uterine fibroids
- Uterine prolapse
Robotic Oophorectomy Surgery
If your doctor recommends an Oophorectomy, the surgical removal of an ovary or ovaries, you may be a candidate for a Robotic Oophorectomy, one of the most effective, least invasive treatment options. Robotic Oophorectomy is performed using the da Vinci Si HD Surgical System, and enables surgeons to perform with precision and control - using only a few small incisions.
Robotic Oophorectomy offers numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal Oophorectomy, particularly when performing more challenging procedures for gynecologic cancer. Potential benefits include:
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Less scarring
- A shorter hospital stay
- A faster return to normal daily activities
Robotic Oophorectomy also allows your surgeon better visualization of anatomy, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder. This means that surgeons have a distinct advantage when performing an Oophorectomy involving adhesions from prior pelvic surgery or non-localized cancer, or an abdominal hysterectomy.
Other Robotic Surgeries Offered at ORMC
In addition to Gynecology Surgery and procedures, we also offer the following types of procedures utilizing our state-of-the-art da Vinci System:
Robotic Surgery for Bariatric Weight Loss
If you are considering having bariatric surgery, you may be a candidate for minimally invasive, robitic surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System.
Robotic Surgery for Prostate Procedures
At Orange Regional, we offer da Vinci Prostatectomy, which is the #1 choice for treatment of localized prostate cancer in the United States.
Robotic Surgery for Kidney Procedures
Robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery for diseases of the kidney allow our urologic surgeons to perform complex surgeries with greater precision and accuracy.
If you and your doctor decide that surgery is the best option, a pre-surgical risk assessment will be done by your doctor, and if necessary, a pre-surgical testing appointment will be scheduled.
