Robotic Surgery Q & A

Why would I need robotic surgery?

Several gynecological conditions may require surgery. When conservative treatments like medications, hormone replacement therapy, or physical therapy are ineffective, Sarasota OB/GYN Associates may recommend a minimally invasive surgical procedure to resolve symptoms and restore your gynecological health.

Conditions that may benefit from robotic surgery include:

  • Endometriosis
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Cancer

You may experience symptoms such as pelvic pain, bloating, and abnormal uterine bleeding due to these conditions. The goal of robotic surgery is to resolve these symptoms and restore your quality of life.

What happens during robotic surgery?

During robotic surgery, Sarasota OB/GYN Associates uses a specialized system that’s manipulated right from your operating room. Your provider is present and in control the entire time.

Your provider uses a console to manipulate small instruments to perform your procedure. These instruments have a wide range of motion that’s superior to the human hand and wrist.

The image of the surgical site is projected on a screen in 3D. This gives the best image of your anatomy for a precise, effective surgery.

What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery is a revolutionary way of addressing gynecological problems. It offers numerous benefits, especially when compared to traditional open surgery. These include:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less scarring
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery

Your provider also has better precision and an exceptionally high-quality image of the surgical site during robotic surgery. This can lead to better outcomes in many cases, including endometriosis and ovarian cysts.

What surgeries can be performed using robotic surgery?

Sarasota OB/GYN Associates can use robotic surgery for the following gynecological surgeries:

  • Hysterectomy, which includes removing the uterus and ovaries
  • Removal of abnormal endometrial tissue
  • Sacrocolpopexy, which is the correction of pelvic organ prolapse
  • Myomectomy, which is removal of uterine fibroids
  • Removal of cancerous tumors
