da Vinci® Gynecologic Surgery – Miami
When all other treatments have not been effective, your doctor may recommend surgery if you have been diagnosed with fibroid tumors, endometriosis, excessive menstrual bleeding, pelvic prolapse or cancer. 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 long open incision. The incision must be large enough for your surgeon to insert instruments and visualize the surgery through that incision. To perform the hysterectomy there can be two approaches to the incision; either horizontal or vertical.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Laparoscopy – With traditional laparoscopy, your surgeon operates through a few small incisions in the abdomen or pelvis, using a thin, lighted tube and camera to guide doctors during surgery. It is used to view the internal organs and inspect or diagnose a condition or to perform surgery.
da Vinci® Surgery
da Vinci Multi-Port Surgery – Minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery is a great option if you are considering gynecologic surgery. da Vinci surgeons operate through a few small incisions instead of a long, large incision – similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System provides your surgeon with a 3D High Definition view inside your body. da Vinci has special, miniature wristed instruments that bend and rotate to a greater degree than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced sight, accuracy and control.
State-of-the-art da Vinci uses modern surgical and robotic technology for routine and complex procedures. Your doctor controls the da Vinci System, which exchanges their hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. Without the surgeon the system cannot operate.
da Vinci Single-Site Surgery – Your uterus can also be removed through a small incision in your belly button with a single incision in a single site. This procedure leaves virtually scar-less results. da Vinci Single-Site hysterectomy is available for benign (non-cancerous) conditions.
