Robotic Q & A
What is gynecologic robotic surgery?
Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive approach that allows the Lucina Women’s Health and Midwifery team to perform procedures on the female reproductive system with robotic assistance. Each robotic surgical platform includes a surgeon console and robotic arms that hold and manipulate surgical instruments.
Your surgeon controls the instruments from the console, which provides a 3D view of the surgical area. During the procedure, your surgeon guides the robotic arms to make precise movements and perform the procedure with enhanced precision and accuracy.
What conditions can robotic surgery treat?
Lucina Women’s Health and Midwifery employs robotic assistance in many procedures the team performs. Your physician may recommend robotic surgery if you have:
- Abnormal bleeding and pelvic pain
- Uterine fibroids
- Reproductive cancer
- Complications from childbirth
- Endometriosis Ovarian cysts
Your surgeon works with you to ensure you’re a good candidate for robotic surgery, depending on your age, medical history, and lifestyle.
What are the benefits of robotic techniques for gynecologic surgery?
Robotic assistance allows for maximum control during gynecologic surgery, which can result in:
Fewer incisions Less blood Shorter recovery Quicker return to daily activities Minimal pain Reduced need for anesthesia
With less damage to the surrounding tissues than traditional surgery, robotic techniques can also reduce your risk of postoperative complications, such as infection.
One positive benefits of Robotics surgeries is faster recovery time. In many instances a patient can return to normal life activities 10 days after their procedure.
Are there different types of robotic surgery in gynecology?
Lucina Women’s Health and Midwifery offers women many robotic surgery options, such as:
A robotic hysterectomy allows your surgeon to remove your uterus laparoscopically, through your abdomen, using small incisions.
With robotic assistance, the team can remove uterine fibroids from your uterus without fully opening your abdomen. You may experience a quicker return to your regular activities than with traditional open surgery.
Oophorectomy with robotic assistance involves removing your ovaries laparoscopically, resulting in a shorter recovery period and less downtime.
Cystectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that treats muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) to prevent it from metastasizing (spreading).
The team uses robotic assistance to remove abnormal endometrial lesions and tissue from your pelvic cavity, eliminating the need to perform open surgery.
Y-Mesh sacrocolpopexy involves inserting mesh materials through small incisions in your abdomen to treat pelvic organ prolapse.
Robotic surgery is a powerful tool that can result in better outcomes for women of all ages. If you’re interested in learning more, call Lucina Women’s Health and Midwifery today, or schedule an appointment online.
