What is Robotic Gynecologic Surgery?
Robotic gynecologic surgery refers to a group of medical treatments that use robotic technology and often 3D imaging to assist in the surgical process. Robotic gynecologic surgery can be utilized to treat many different conditions that affect women worldwide.
Some issues that are often treated with robotic surgery for women include:
- Ovarian Cancer
- Uterine Cancer
- Heavy Uterine Bleeding
- Bladder Cancer
- Kidney Disorders
- Uterine Fibroids
- Uterine Prolapse
- Pelvic Organ Prolapse
How Does Computer-Assisted Gynecologic Surgery Work?
Traditional surgery features one or more large incisions at the site where the surgery will be performed. Computer-assisted surgery instead makes several small incisions in the side. This is known as a laparoscopic approach.
During robotic gynecologic surgery, tiny surgical tools are inserted through the incisions made. These tools typically include an imaging device that allows the surgeon to view a magnified 3D image of the surgical site.
Using this image, the surgeon is able to manipulate the surgical tools with extreme precision. During the robotic procedure, the surgeon is in 100% control of the surgery. Because it features small incisions and is performed laparoscopically, robotic surgery features:
- Shorter Operation Time
- Smaller Recovery Period
- Shorter Downtime
- Reduced Scar Appearance
- Shorter Hospital Stay
- Decreased Infection Risk
