Robotic surgeries are minimally invasive, offering reduced risks compared with traditional open surgery.
What is gynecologic robotics used for?
The Lucina Women’s Health and Midwifery specialists use gynecologic robotics technology to complete numerous women’s health procedures, including:

- Oophorectomy: removal of the ovaries

- Endometriosis treatment: removal of endometrial tissue

Dr. Konsker is highly skilled in gynecologic robotics and uses the latest advances in technologies and procedures.
Is gynecologic robotics right for me?
Dr. Konsker completes a physical exam, including a pelvic exam and Pap smear if needed, to determine if you have a women’s health issue that warrants a gynecologic robotics procedure. He also discusses your symptoms, medical history, treatment preferences, and long-term goals.
You might need an ultrasound, blood test, biopsy, or another diagnostic procedure before you undergo gynecologic robotics treatment.
What happens during gynecologic robotics procedures?
During a gynecologic robotics procedure, you might receive local or regional anesthesia with the option of a sedative or general anesthesia to make you fall asleep. Dr. Lewis may make a tiny incision, use robotic arms to complete the procedure, and close any incisions afterward.
What should I expect after treatment with gynecologic robotics?
After the procedure, follow your post-surgical care instructions. Getting plenty of rest, taking medications as directed, and following up with Dr. Lewis is important to ensure proper healing. Slowly ease back into physical activity as instructed and call the Lucina Women’s Health and Midwifery office with questions at any time.
