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. These conditions may include:

  • cervical and uterine cancer
  • uterine fibroids
  • endometriosis
  • uterine prolapse
  • menorrhagia or excessive bleeding

Traditional gynecologic surgery uses a large incision. This type of open surgery may cause significant pain, trauma, and a long recovery period.

Less Invasive

For complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci® System can operate with greater precision and control.

Procedures performed with the da Vinci® Surgical System:

  • Hysterectomy - surgical removal of the uterus and/or other reproductive organs
  • Myomectomy - surgical removal of uterine fibroids
  • Sacrocolpopexy - surgery for uterine or vaginal vault prolapse
