Development of da Vinci® Robot Surgery
In gynecology, da Vinci® robot surgery is utilized for conditions requiring hysterectomy, myomectomy (removal of uterine fibroids) and pelvic prolapse. If you need surgery, I would encourage you to become educated on the benefits of robotic surgery.
The da Vinci® robot is a new innovative tool that gives a surgeon improved visualization and control during complex surgeries. During some gynecologic procedures surgeons performing da Vinci® robot surgery are able to access the target anatomy using a vaginal approach, which may not require an external incision. But for complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using this phenomenal robotic surgery system can operate with greater precision and control using the magnified high definition 3D image. At the same time, state-of-the-art robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate the surgeon’s hand movements into precise micro-movements of the da Vinci® instruments. This will minimize the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
