Robotic Gynecologic Surgery

Robotic Gynecologic Surgery


Is a gynecologic condition affecting your health and quality of life? Many conditions can impact your well-being and daily life, such as: severe pelvic pain, abnormal or very heavy bleeding, fibroids cancer pelvic prolapse (falling/slipping of a pelvic organ(s)), etc.  When lifestyle changes, medicine or other options do not ease your symptoms, your doctor may suggest surgery, and robotic surgery might be the right choice for you.  

Robotic Surgery is Revolutionizing Gynecologic Surgery for Women

Traditional 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. Yet with open (large incision) surgery, one can expect significant pain, trauma, and a long recovery process. For women facing open gynecologic surgery, the period of pain, discomfort and extended time away from normal daily activities can understandably cause significant anxiety.

Fortunately, the less invasive Robotic surgery option is available at Good Samaritan Hospital.

  • Through tiny, 1-2 cm. incisions, our surgeons can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.

Hysterectomy

When medication and other treatments cannot relieve your symptoms, hysterectomy is often recommended. It can provide a more effective, definitive and long-term solution for conditions like excessive menstrual bleeding. If you are considering or your doctor has recommended a hysterectomy, you are not alone. One in three women in the United States will have a hysterectomy before turning 60.

Benefits of Robotic Hysterectomy

  • Significantly less pain
  • Minimal blood loss and need for transfusion
  • Fewer complications
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
  • Small incisions for minimal scarring
  • Better outcomes and patient satisfaction

Myomectomy:

The removal of uterine fibroids while still preserving a functional uterus.

Benefits of Robotic Myomectomy

 The Robot allows the for the comprehensive reconstruction of the uterine wall, regardless of the size or location of your fibroids. The unique level of control and precision of our robot can also help your surgeon provide the most precise and thorough reconstruction possible. That can help to prevent a possible uterine rupture (tearing) during future pregnancies.

  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
