Gynecologic Robotic Surgery
Robotic surgery is a less-invasive option that can reduce the pain and risk associated with traditional surgery while improving outcomes and allowing for quicker recovery. Using the da Vinci Xi® Surgical System, our experienced surgeons can operate through small incisions with a high degree of precision and control.
Traditionally, gynecologic surgery often meant large incisions, extensive pain, long recovery time (usually six weeks), heavy pain medication, risk of infection, and significant blood loss. Hysterectomies performed with the da Vinci Xi® Surgical System offer many benefits over other types of hysterectomies.
An excellent option for hysterectomy.
At St. Luke’s Hospital we’re equipped with the state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi® Surgical System and highly skilled surgeons with extensive robotic experience and training. With the da Vinci® system, our surgeons can perform hysterectomies and other gynecologic surgeries safely and with great precision.
Gynecologic robotic surgery is a less invasive procedure performed through several tiny incisions. These one to two-centimeter incisions make robotic surgery the least invasive type of gynecologic surgery available today. Robotic surgery provides improved dexterity, precision and control for the surgeon, leading to better outcomes for many patients.
Robotic surgery means less pain, less blood loss, and less chance for scarring or infection than with traditional gynecologic surgeries. Also, your healing and recovery time will be faster (around two weeks), so you’ll be back on your feet and back to your normal activities more quickly.
Since 2000, multiple-thousands of robotic hysterectomies have been performed with excellent results.
Other gynecologic procedures.
St. Luke’s surgeons skillfully perform many gynecologic robotic procedures, including:
- Cervical cancer
- Complex benign hysterectomy
- Endometrial cancer
- Resection of endometriosis
If your physician has recommended surgery, be sure to ask if robotic surgery at St. Luke’s Hospital is right for you.
