da Vinci Surgery
Common Gynecological Surgeries
Your doctor may recommend surgery if you have been diagnosed any of the following:
- Fibroid tumors
- Excessive menstrual bleeding
- Pelvic prolapse
Gynecologic surgery is often performed using either traditional open surgery or minimally invasive surgery.
During an abdominal hysterectomy (open surgery), your uterus is removed through a large open incision. The incision must be large enough for your surgeon to see your organs and fit his/her hands and instruments inside your body.
An open surgery incision can be horizontal or vertical. Many women are familiar with the horizontal incision (also called a “bikini” incision) since it is commonly used for a C-section.
The da Vinci® Surgery
The da Vinci System provides your surgeon with a 3D HD® view inside your body. da Vinci has special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist.
Benefits of da Vinci System
As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control.
Your doctor controls the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. This technology allows for virtually scarless results.
