Robotic Gynecological Surgery

Robotic surgery provides a minimally invasive option for gynecologic surgeries and is one of the most accepted and effective treatments for a Facing any kind of gynecologic surgery can create a great deal of anxiety. The most common concerns for most women are: “Will my body function normally following surgery?” and “How long will my recovery take?” Traditional open gynecologic surgery—in which larger incisions are made to access the reproductive organs—has been the standard approach when surgery is warranted. The discomfort after surgery and extended time away from normal daily activities that usually follows traditional surgery can understandably cause significant anxiety.
Fortunately, robotic surgery now offers a new minimally invasive option for complex or delicate gynecologic surgeries and is one of the most accepted and effective treatments for a number of gynecologic conditions, including cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and menorrhagia or excessive bleeding. Robotic-assisted gynecologic surgery minimizes the pain and risk associated with large incisions, reduces surgical trauma and scarring, and increases the likelihood of a quicker recovery
