When a woman hears that she's going to have to have surgery, any option seems "invasive." Fortunately, you often do have options, and you may have several to consider. If you’ve been told you need surgery, one minimally invasive option is da Vinci Surgery.
The da Vinci System has brought minimally invasive surgery to more than 3 million patients worldwide. da Vinci Surgery is used for many types of surgeries including cardiac, colorectal, and general surgery in addition to gynecological surgery.
Many gynecological conditions can impact your well-being and daily life, such as:
- Severe pelvic pain
- Abnormal or very heavy bleeding
- Pelvic prolapse (falling/slipping of a pelvic organ)
When lifestyle changes, medicine, or other options do not ease your symptoms, your doctor may suggest surgery. Surgery can include:
- Open surgery: done through one large incision
- Laparoscopic / robotic-assisted da Vinci Surgery minimally invasive surgery is done through a few small incisions
With the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons operate through just a few small incisions using a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate with far greater flexibility than the human hand. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, and control.
Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System at all times. da Vinci technology translates your surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. The da Vinci System combines the latest in surgical and robotics technologies.
If you are trying to decide which surgical option is right for you, schedule a consultation at WHASN Central. Fortunately, many problems that required surgery in the past can now be treated with medicines or less invasive procedures.
