When you have an issue with your pelvic organs that can’t be resolved with noninvasive, conservative treatments, such as hormone therapy, medications, physical therapy, or lifestyle changes, surgery may be recommended.
Your pelvic organs include the fallopian tubes, ovaries, uterus, cervix, and vagina. Issues that can affect these organs and cause uncomfortable, life-disrupting symptoms include:
Symptoms associated with these conditions include pelvic pain and abnormal bleeding. Robotic surgery may resolve the issue that’s causing these symptoms, so you find relief.
Robotic surgery is performed by your doctor, who is present in the operating room for the entire procedure and has complete control the whole time.
During surgery, they manipulate small robotic tools using a specialized console. The instruments move like a human hand but have even finer movement capabilities and a greater range of motion.
The robotic surgery system provides a close-up 3D view of your anatomy, so there is more precision during your procedure.
Robotic surgery offers numerous advantages over traditional open surgery. These benefits include:
The robotic tools allow for greater precision and heightened visuals of the surgical site, so outcomes are more reliable, especially when it comes to a procedure such as removing endometriosis or ovarian cysts.
