What Is Robotic Surgery?
Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that allows us to provide treatment without making large incisions, which could require an extended hospital stay or a lengthy recovery. During the procedure, your provider will make a small incision to insert tools and a camera that provides real-time 3D images. Then, they’ll conduct the procedure from a console.
During robot-assisted surgery, your provider will direct all operations and rely on precise movements in response. Robot surgery allows us to provide the most efficient, high-quality treatment possible.
What Can Robotic Surgery Treat?
Robotic surgery is highly beneficial for treating several gynecological conditions, including pelvic prolapse, fibroids, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, and excessive menstrual bleeding. Some of the benefits of robotic surgery include:
- More dexterity, access, and precision during surgery
- Fewer complications during surgery
- Less pain post-surgery
- Less risk of infection
- Quicker recovery time
Compared to traditional surgery, robotic surgery may be a more manageable option for anyone who is apprehensive about undergoing surgical procedures. This allows our providers to offer the care you need on your terms.
