Gynaecological procedures include surgeries of the female reproductive (sex) organs which includes cervix, uterus, ovaries, fallopian tube, vagina and vulva.
A) Endometriosis resection
Endometriosis is a condition when tissues similar to the uterus lining start growing abnormally outside the uterus. This condition causes intense pain and discomfort to women. In case of severe condition, surgery is considered as viable option. Through the Da vinci robot, the surgeon can easily remove excess tissues using its capabilities and movement while leaving the other organs intact.
Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus that is performed when a patient is suffering from abnormal uterine bleeding, benign or cancerous uterine conditions and prolapse. With the use of the Da Vinci robot, the surgeon can perform a hysterectomy either with small incisions or with one single incision through the belly button. The single site hysterectomy performed with Da Vinci is virtually scar less.
C) Myoma resections
Myoma resection is a removal surgery of fibroids (non-cancerous growth) that have developed on the walls of uterus. Patients with fibroids suffer from heavy periods, abnormal bleeding and severe abdominal pain. With the da Vinci robotic system, the surgeon can perform myoma resection / myomectomy (removal of fibroids from uterine wall) with small incisions and more precision, keeping the uterus intact.
Oophorectomy is the surgical removal of an ovary or ovaries which is performed in case of a benign or malignant ovarian tumour, to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer. The da Vinci robotic system allows the surgeon to perform oophorectomy with better visualisation ofh te anatomy which is critical in performing this surgery around the delicate area of bladder, and also performing surgery on asite which has previously been worked on.
E) Pelvic organ prolapse
The prolapse (or misalignment) of pelvic organs (uterus, vagina, cervix, bladde , urethra or rectum) due to weakening of muscles and ligaments. Sacrocolpopexy is a correction surgery performed via the da vinci robotic system that uses tiny incisions to perform durable sacrocolpopexy even for women with complex conditions.
