Gynecological Surgery

Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has long been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures.

But open surgery can result in significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process, and pose a threat to surrounding organs and nerves.

When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions.

Conditions Treated

  • Cervical and uterine cancer
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Excessive menstrual bleeding
  • Pelvic prolapse
  • Gynecological cancer
  • Hysterectomy
  • Diagnostic laparoscopy
  • Tubal reanastomosis 

How It Works

Fortunately, less invasive options are available. Some gynecologic procedures enable surgeons to access the target anatomy using a vaginal approach, which may not require an external incision. But for complex hysterectomies, tubal ligation reversals, and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may be the most effective and least invasive treatment option.

Through tiny incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci® System can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
