Robotic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery that uses advanced technology to minimize incisions and improve surgical precision. During robotic surgery, your specialist at Ocean Obstetric & Gynecologic Associates uses miniaturized surgical tools and a high-definition camera to perform your procedure from a special surgical console. The robotic tools allow your surgeon to adjust the scale of the robot’s movements to ensure the accuracy of your incisions and procedure.
The experienced OB/GYN team at Ocean Obstetric & Gynecologic Associates may use robotic surgery to perform a number of procedures, including:
A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of your uterus. The team may be able to use robotic surgery to remove your uterus to reduce your recovery time and scarring. Over 95% of women go home the same day.
Ovarian cysts are common and sometimes cause symptoms that may require surgical removal. With robotic surgery, your specialist can perform an ovarian cystectomy with care and ease.
Your specialist may also choose to use robotic surgery for removal of your fibroid, repair pelvic organ prolapse, or for an endometriosis resection.
Your specialist at Ocean Obstetric & Gynecologic Associates determines if your procedure can be conducted using robotic surgery based on the type of surgery you need, your medical and surgical history, and your overall health. Even if you’re having a hysterectomy or ovarian cystectomy, robotic surgery may not be the best choice for you.
Your robotic surgery is performed under general anesthesia, so you’re not awake while your procedure is being performed. From the special robotic surgical console, your specialist begins by first making a small incision in your abdomen for the high-definition camera. Then, additional incisions are made for the miniaturized surgical instruments.
After your surgery, your incisions are closed and you’re sent to the recovery room. Your specialist may recommend you take it easy following your surgery. The length of your recovery depends on the type of surgery performed.
