Women's Surgical Procedures, Robotic


    Robotic women's surgical procedures are robot-assisted surgical procedure performed on female patients. Robot-assisted surgery allows surgeons a greater level of precision and access to more remote and fragile regions of the body than conventional surgery.

    Minimally invasive surgery is known for quick recovery time, shorter hospital stays and small incisions (1-2cm) compared to traditional open surgery.  The state-of-art technology is da Vinci surgery which offers patients more opportunities for a faster recovery. The da Vinci robot provides the surgeon the ability to control robotic arms with 360 degrees of mobility, seven degrees of freedom, while looking through a camera with three dimensional and high definition images.  This technology allows more procedures to be performed via minimally invasive techniques, so patients experience a quicker recovery, faster return to normal activities, shorter hospital stay, less pain, less scarring, and fewer surgical complications.
