Traditionally, using a large incision for gynecologic surgery has been the standard approach to procedures.  However, with open surgery, there can be significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process, and threat to surrounding organs and nerves.  For women facing gynecologic surgery, the goal would be to perform the surgery in the least invasive way possible.  Some gynecologic procedures enable surgeons to access the target anatomy using a vaginal approach, which may not require an external incision.  But for complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the robot may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option.  Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci Robotic System can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions, while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.  Here at Women's Healthcare Associates, we have many certified physicians trained in robotic surgery so that our patients can benefit from this up to date surgical technique.
