robotic surgery

We are pleased to offer the most advanced technology available in surgery today. The da Vinci Surgical Robot is a breakthrough technology that allows the completion of surgeries that were only accomplished through large incisions previously. Because the da Vinci is a 3D/HD camera based technology, the visualization is superior to standard laparoscopy. One of the most important technological advances is the development of wristed surgical instruments. The ability to precisely move these instruments is linked with the ability to move the direction of the instruments in many more directions than the human hand.


This procedure us used for many gynecological conditions including the following:

  • removal of fibroids (myomectomy)

  • uterine and vaginal prolapse surgery

  • removal of scar tissue (adhesions)

  • endometriosis resection

  • hysterectomy
  • FDA Approved

    The daVinci Surgical System has been approved by the food and drug administration in 2005 and is one of the newest and most advanced technological breakthroughs in surgical procedures.


    The main advantage of utilizing robotic surgery is to minimize open invasive surgery and minimize trauma. Most surgeries can be performed vaginally or involve the use of laparoscopic instruments. Laparoscopy allows observation of the surgical field through the use of an endoscope or similar device and is carried through small incisions in the skin allowing access to the abdomen or pelvis. The result is less recovery time, shorter hospital stays, less operative trauma, less scarring and decreases risk of post-surgical complications. Most procedures are considered to be mostly pain-free and at worst associated with mild discomfort.

    how it works

    The daVinci Robotic Surgical System consists of two interactive mechanical arms, 3D image console, remote control unit and a camera arm and is located in the same operating room as the patient receiving the surgery. The arms are controlled by surgeons via remote control and the arms mimic the surgeons hand movements identically and more precisely. The hand of the robot's arms hold interchangeable surgical tools that are moved in a similar manner as human wrists. A second surgeon is also in the operating room at the operating table to assist with changing the robotic tools.
