Robotic Gynecologic Surgery

Less Invasive Surgery, Quicker Recovery

For women with a gynecologic condition, the decision to have surgery can be difficult. A woman's busy life does not leave much time to recover from a significant surgical procedure.

Surgical recovery time can now be shortened due to advances in robotic technology. When applied to gynecologic conditions, robotic surgery can be used to treat cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and excessive bleeding.

Benefits of Robotic Surgery may include:

  • Smaller incisions/less scarring
  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Faster return to normal daily activities
