Gynecologic Robotic Surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System

Treatment of Gynecologic Problems

When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms for women, surgery remains the most accepted and effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. Traditional open surgery, using a large incision to access the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has for many years been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures.

Luckily for women, there is the da Vinci® Surgical System, which provides surgeons with an alternative to traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. It puts a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform and enables them to perform complex and delicate procedures through very small 1-2 cm incisions.

Benefits of the da Vinci Surgical System include:

  • Greater precision and control
  • Reduced pain
  • Faster recovery

Gynecologic conditions include:

  • Cervical cancer
  • Uterine cancer
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Menorrhagia
  • Excessive bleeding
