da Vinci Robotic Surgery Q&A

What is da Vinci robotic surgery?

The da Vinci robotic system is an advanced surgical platform that the Dekalb Women’s Specialists team uses to treat a range of gynecological conditions. The platform consists of a surgeon’s console, a set of computer-controlled robotic arms, and a video monitor.

Your surgeon controls the robotic arms for the duration of your procedure with a high level of precision. They can remove excess tissue or abnormal growths without damaging nearby tissue.

Your provider can operate the arms through small incisions in the treatment area. They also use a small camera that transmits a magnified, 3D view of the surgical site to an external monitor.

When would I need da Vinci robotic surgery?

You may be a candidate for da Vinci robotic surgery when medications and other therapies can’t treat conditions like:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Uterine fibroids (myomectomy)
  • Endometriosis
  • Reproductive cancers
  • Abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Pelvic organ prolapse (sacrocolpopexy)

The Dekalb Women’s Specialists team also uses the da Vinci surgical system during a hysterectomy to remove your uterus, ovaries, and other reproductive organs through small incisions.

In addition to smaller incisions, robotic-assisted surgery provides many advantages over traditional gynecological surgery. Your risk for bleeding, pain, and infection is lower, and you can expect to need less downtime to recover.  

What can I expect during da Vinci robotic surgery?

During surgery, the Dekalb Women’s Specialists team uses the da Vinci robotic platform to treat your condition. Your surgeon controls the robotic arms, which move like human hands but with far greater range of motion.

Your surgeon watches the monitor to get a close-up view of the treatment site while they remove polyps or fibroids or repair weak pelvic floor muscles. Their precision minimizes damage to surrounding tissues, and the small incisions mean you can heal faster than you might after traditional open surgery.

After your procedure is complete, you can go home to start your recovery. The team provides comprehensive after-care guidance to help you heal fully and lower your risk for post-surgical complications.
