Making Gynecological Surgeries Simpler
- Department of:
- Adena Regional Medical Center
When you’re facing surgery, the technology that will be used isn’t usually the first thing you think about. You’re concerned with a quick recovery, as little pain as possible, and getting back to your life. Especially if you’ve been diagnosed with:
- Uterine fibroids
- Heaving bleeding
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Ovarian, cervical, vulvar, and endometrial cancers
With minimally invasive surgery, you’ll generally be out of the hospital in less than 24 hours, plus you’ll have less pain and less scarring—just a few small incisions. Recovery is much quicker—often just days or a few weeks, compared to a month or two for traditional surgery.
Adena’s daVinci robotic surgical system enables gynecological procedures to be done more precisely and less invasively. Surgeons use the daVinci’s 3-dimensional camera to view a magnified image of the surgical site on a computer monitor, and then manipulate miniaturized instruments that have been inserted through tiny 1 to 2 centimeter incisions. The “robot” translates the surgeon’s movements into micro-movements inside the patient’s body, allowing enhanced precision for complex procedures.
At Adena, our surgeons use the daVinci to perform:
- Endometrial surgery
- Ovarian cyst procedures
- Pelvic pain procedures, such as pelvic adhesions
Other minimally invasive procedures that don’t require surgery that our physicians offer include:
- Essure sterilization, a form of permanent birth control
- Endometrial ablation to help stop or reduce menstrual flow for women who experience excessive menstrual blood loss
- Laparoscopy, often used to treat uterine fibroids or pelvic organ prolapse
