We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
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
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)
