da Vinci Robotic Surgery Q & A

When might I need gynecological surgery?

A woman’s pelvic organs include the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, and vagina. When any of these organs develops a problem, it can cause uncomfortable symptoms and interfere with your quality of life.

If lifestyle changes, medications, and other conservative interventions fail to resolve symptoms, your doctor at Dekalb Women’s Specialists may suggest surgery.

Robotic surgery with the da Vinci system can help with issues including:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibroids
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Cancer

Make an appointment at Dekalb Women’s Specialists to find out if your condition requires surgery and if the da Vinci approach is right for you.

What is the da Vinci robotic surgery system?

The da Vinci is a surgical system that consists of three components: the surgeon’s console, the patient-side cart, and the vision cart. During surgery, your surgeon remains in full control of the system as they manipulate the small robotic tools using the surgeon console. The instruments are “wristed” and move like a human hand, but with a far greater range of motion. 

Your surgeon has a close-up 3D view of your anatomy and is in the operating room with you for the entire procedure.

The side cart is set up near the patient and contains the instruments operated by your surgeon. The vision cart facilitates communication between the components of the system and supports the latest 3D high-definition vision system.

What are the benefits of the da Vinci Surgical System?

The da Vinci Surgical System offers many benefits and advantages compared to traditional open surgery. The procedures require smaller incisions, result in less blood loss, and allow for faster recovery.

The robotic tools also enable your surgeon to perform your surgery with a higher degree of precision than with their own hands. The 3D images enhance their vision of the surgical site, so they can complete your procedure effectively.

What gynecologic surgeries can the da Vinci robotic system support?

The da Vinci robotic system has a wide variety of applications. Some of the most common uses include:

  • Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus and sometimes the ovaries)
  • Myomectomy (removal of uterine fibroids)
  • Removal of abnormal endometrial tissue
  • Sacrocolpopexy (correction of pelvic organ prolapse) 
  • Removal of cancerous tumors 

Not every gynecological surgeon has the experience and training to use the da Vinci system. Dr. Scott is uniquely qualified to help you with your gynecological surgery.
