What is da Vinci robotic surgery?

The Da Vinci robotic surgeons at Marina OB/GYN use state-of-the-art, most technologically advance, surgical technique on the planet to complete your minimally invasive gynecologic procedures.  Robotic techniques allow your surgeon to achieve optimal accuracy and precision with minimal risks and recovery. They control robotic hands using a computerized console to complete your surgery.

What are the benefits of da Vinci robotic surgery?

The main benefits you can expect by choosing da Vinci robotic procedures with the Marina OB/GYN team include:

  • Less pain
  • Reduced recovery times
  • Smaller incisions
  • Less bleeding
  • Low risk of complications
  • Smaller scars
  • Shorter hospital stays

Most patients are able to go home the same day after robotic surgery. Robotic procedures offer superior results, and you can resume normal activities quicker than after traditional open surgeries.

Is da Vinci robotic surgery right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for da Vinci robotic surgery at Marina OB/GYN, your specialist reviews your symptoms, medical history, lifestyle habits, and medication regimen. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam that includes a pelvic exam, and may order blood tests, a pelvic ultrasound, a Pap test, hysteroscopy, colposcopy, or other diagnostic procedures.

Robotic surgery is useful for completing:

  • Fibroid removal
  • Cyst removal
  • Fallopian tube procedures
  • Hysterectomies
  • Endometriosis treatment
  • Other gynecological surgeries

Your specialist can also use the Da Vinci robot to perform the procedure to complete permanent birth control for women, including btl (removal of both fallopian tubes) and/or full or partial hysterectomies.

What should I expect during the procedure?

You receive general anesthesia before da Vinci robotic surgery thus putting you completely to sleep.  Three or four small incisions (usually the size of a pinky tip) are made on your belly.  Your provider has 100% control of the robotic arms that maneuver the very small instruments in performing the surgery.  Once the surgery is complete, the robotic is removed, all of the tiny tools are taking out of your body and our gynecologist close your small incision with a dissolvable suture.

What happens after da Vinci robotic surgery?

After da Vinci robotic surgery, there’s little downtime. You often go home the same day as the procedure, but driving immediately afterward is not recommended. Follow your specialist’s instructions by taking medications as directed, getting plenty of rest, and attending follow-up appointments.

You may have some tenderness near the treatment areas during the healing process. Call the Marina OB/GYN team if you have worsening pain or unusual side effects.

Your Marina OB/GYN provider monitors you to ensure the procedure is effective. They offer additional treatments if needed to ensure superior outcomes.
