"The Baby Doctor"

When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. These include, but are not limited to

  • Cervical and uterine cancer
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine prolapse and menorrhagia
  • Excessive bleeding

Traditional open gynecologic surgery uses a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy which can come with significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process and threat to surrounding organs and nerves.

Fortunately, less invasive options are available.

Some gynecologic procedures enable surgeons to access the target anatomy using a vaginal approach, which may not require an external incision. But for complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci System* can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
