Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery for Hysterectomy Watch Video >>



Robotic surgery

Robotic surgery enables physicians to perform minimally invasive surgery that was not possible with simple laparoscopic instruments. Its one of the greatest advancements in surgery during our lifetime. With the robots high definition camera, 10 times magnification and 540 degrees of movement we are able to perform surgery that could not be accomplished with traditional methods.

Our goal is to reduce the amount procedures with large abdominal incisions that have been traditionally used in the past to perform both myomectomies and hysterectomies. Last year over 600,000 hysterectomies were performed with large abdominal incisions. Unfortunately only a small percent of patients were offered robotic surgery as an option. Because robotic surgery enables completion of more technically difficult procedures with faster recovery we believe it is the best choice for our patients.
