The Basics of Robotic Gyn Surgery

Robotic-assisted surgery is a minimally invasive option performed by your provider, who uses a robot with an attached high-definition camera and dexterous tools. When using the robot, your provider will have better visualization and precision. The use of robotic tools and equipment allows for more flexible movement, too, for better performance and overall outcomes. Like a standard surgery, your provider will be in control and assisted by the rest of your healthcare team.

Robotic Gyn surgery is typically performed with surgical procedures such as:

  • Hysterectomy
  • Pelvic reconstructive surgery
  • Ovarian cystectomy
  • Endometriosis Removal
  • Myomectomy
  • Oophorectomy

This surgical option is currently only available for those with non-cancerous conditions. Robotic assistance is generally used with laparoscopic procedures rather than open surgeries. Laparoscopic procedures are less invasive for patients and reduce scars once you’ve recovered from surgery.

If you have questions about robotic Gyn surgery, our team is available to answer them. We want you to feel confident and comfortable with your healthcare team before undergoing any kind of surgery. Our focus is on helping you feel better.

Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Robotic Gyn surgery has several potential benefits for patients who choose this option, such as:

  • Shorter recovery time
  • Smaller incisions and scars
  • Less pain and blood loss

Most robotic surgical procedures give you the opportunity to go home the same day. The procedure was likely done with small incisions, which will allow you to recover more quickly and return to your daily activities sooner.

Smaller incisions and quicker recovery times also often lead to fewer infections. Since the incision site is smaller, there is less opportunity for infections to reach it.

When getting robotic Gyn surgery, you’ll be able to work with your same provider and healthcare team. This often increases patient comfort, which is essential when trusting someone to perform surgery.
