Robotics have greatly improved the options in surgery, including gynecologic surgery. Inventions such as the DaVinci® surgical robotic system allow for less invasive procedures that can offer increased precision for the surgeon. At FEM Women’s Wellness, we are happy to offer gynecologic robotic surgery for many procedures we perform through our practice in the Reno and Lake Tahoe, NV, area.
Benefits of Robotic Surgery
Robotic surgery is used for many different procedures, from orthopedic joint replacements to organ repair and removal. The DaVinci robotic system is the most advanced technology in the world, allowing for laparoscopic procedures to be performed with incredible accuracy. The surgeries can be performed through small incisions for robotic tools and 3D cameras. The robotic arms are guided by the surgeon, who has an excellent view on a digital screen of the surgical area.
Compared to traditional open surgery or even previous laparoscopic surgeries, robotic procedures offer many benefits. The robotic arms and tools can move in ways that the human hand cannot – they can rotate 360-degrees to perform intricate tasks during surgery. The surgeon has a much better view of the area for better results during the procedure. For the patient, robotic surgery can offer the following benefits:
- Smaller incisions and scars
- Less risk of infection and complications
- Reduced pain after the procedure
- Faster recovery times
While not all gynecologic procedures can be performed with the DaVinci robotic system, there are many that we offer at FEM Women’s Wellness. For women suffering from endometriosis, excessive menstrual bleeding, uterine fibroids or pelvic prolapse, gynecologic robotic surgery may be an option when conservative treatments are ineffective.
Any surgical procedure can be frightening, but with robotic options, patients can have less risk and a shorter recovery period. If you have a chronic gynecological condition that may require surgical treatment, come see us at FEM Women’s Wellness. We have GYN specialists and surgeons that offer DaVinci robotic gynecologic surgery at our facility in the Carson City, Reno and Lake Tahoe, NV, area.
