Penn Robotic Gynecologic Surgery Conditions and Procedures

Robotic-assisted surgery is similar to other forms of minimally invasive surgery in that instruments and cameras are inserted through small incisions. The camera's magnified, three-dimensional view and small robotic instruments enhance the surgeon's ability to perform complex procedures.

According to Mathew Beshara, MD, an obstetrician and gynecologist at Penn who performs robotic-assisted surgery:

"Robotic-assisted surgery can be useful in the performance of hysterectomies, removal of fibroids while preserving the uterus, correction of vaginal prolapse, pelvic reconstructive surgery and reversing tubal ligation."
