Robotic Surgery Q&A

What is robotic surgery?

Often referred to as robot-assisted surgery, robotic surgery uses special robots designed to provide surgeon-directed assistance during surgical procedures that require a high level of precision. In robotic surgery, the robot does not perform the surgery, but instead, it is guided by the surgeon to perform specific portions of the surgery. Robot-assisted procedures can be performed through extremely small incisions, resulting in less tissue damage, less bleeding and less post-operative pain, as well as a faster recovery.

What is the da Vinci robot system?

The da Vinci system is a specially-designed surgical robot used in many types of surgeries, including gynecology surgeries. The robot requires a few small incisions instead of a single large incision, and it also features a 3D magnifying camera designed to provide a detailed view of the surgical site. The instruments used by the robot have greater flexibility and control than traditional surgical instruments, enabling the surgeon to operate with far greater precision and dexterity.

When is robot-assisted surgery used?

Robot-assisted surgery has several applications in gynecology. Some of the more common uses include:

  • hysterectomy
  • removal of fibroid tumors
  • treatment of pelvic organ prolapse, a condition where one or more organs in the lower belly “drops” toward the vagina
  • treatment of endometriosis, a condition that occurs when the tissue that normally lines the uterus begins growing outside the uterus
  • treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding, including menorrhagia that occurs near menopause
  • treatment of certain types of cancer

Is robot-assisted surgery a good choice for me?

While robotic surgery can be an excellent choice for some patients, it cannot be used for all conditions or in all women. The decision of whether or not to use a robot-assisted approach will be made following a thorough examination and a review of the patient's medical history.
