Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has long been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures.
But open surgery can result in significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process, and pose a threat to surrounding organs and nerves.
When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions.
- Cervical and uterine cancer
- Uterine fibroids
- Uterine prolapse
- Excessive menstrual bleeding
- Pelvic prolapse
- Gynecological cancer
- Diagnostic laparoscopy
- Tubal reanastomosis
How It Works
Fortunately, less invasive options are available. Some gynecologic procedures enable surgeons to access the target anatomy using a vaginal approach, which may not require an external incision. But for complex hysterectomies, tubal ligation reversals, and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may be the most effective and least invasive treatment option.
Through tiny incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci® System 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.
