The most modern and safe way to perform surgical operations is by robotically assisted laparoscopic surgery. It is mainly known as a robotic surgery.
Robotic surgery comes to change, in an important way, the image of surgical operations. Transcending the limitations of traditional laparoscopic techniques.
The use of the da Vinci robotic system, has a definite contribution in providing important services as it improves the surgeons’ potentials. It gives a 3D visualization, image stability and magnification of the surgical field. Furthermore, it provides the potential of extremely delicate maneuvers.
The surgeon controls microscopical instruments with impressive accuracy and flexibility and thus, without big surgical incisions. It has the possibility to carry out even complex surgical operations by using 3 to 5 small incisions (10mm) on the abdomen.
For most women, robotic surgery in gynecology offers many benefits in comparison to laparotomy for many reasons.
It comes with less pain, less blood loss, it allows safer surgeries and the lower possibility of infection. Also, post-operative complications, a shorter stay at hospital (usually one night). In generally, it provides a faster recovery and return to work. Finally, it guarantees an aesthetically pleasing result.
Robotic surgery in gynecology, also, offers benefits and solutions to important fields like infertility and oncology.
The accuracy of surgical maneuvers in robotic surgery allows operations near important structures. Such as the endometrium, the Fallopian tubes and ovaries, without threatening their integrity. Moreover, the stitching and rehabilitation of those structures recovering in the best anatomical relationship. As a matter of fact, contributes to the correction of fertility problems.
Furthermore, in oncology, the movement stability the instruments offering to minimal invasive surgery, guarantees the safety of the oncological result.
More specifically, in the following common gynecological conditions we apply Da Vinci system :
- Dysfunctional uterine hemorrhage
- Gynecological cancer
- Prolapse of pelvic organs
In conclusion, we can say that in the vast majority of gynecological operations, we can apply robotic surgery.
