Gynecological Surgery

Robotic surgery offers a minimally invasive approach to hysterectomy and other procedures such as fibroid removal, endometriosis surgery, endometrial/cervical cancer surgery, and vaginal/uterine prolapse.

For years, the standard approach to hysterectomy has been traditional open gynecological surgery--using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy. Using the da Vinci® robotic surgical system, surgeons at Coral Gables Hospital can perform hysterectomy through small incisions, using mechanically-enhanced micro instruments. Robotic surgery is designed to minimize the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.

Some examples of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery include:

  • Hysterectomy for benign conditions
  • Hysterectomy for early stages of gynecologic cancer
  • Myomectomy to remove uterine fibroids
  • Sacrocolpopexy to correct vaginal/uterine prolapse

Potential patient benefits may include:

  • Less Need for Pain Medication
  • Less Blood Loss and Fewer Transfusions
  • Fewer Complications
  • Shorter Hospital Stay
  • Quicker Recovery and Fast Return to Normal Daily Activities
  • Better Clinical Outcomes and Patient Satisfaction (in many cases as compared to open surgery)
