Robotic Surgery

The North Shore-LIJ Women’s Health robotic surgery program was one of the first programs to offer the robotic approach to gynecology patients in the Northeast.  With participation of urogynecologists, gynecologic oncologists, and general gynecologists, our team of robotic-trained surgeons utilizes the da Vinci™ Surgical System as an alternative to both traditional open surgery and standard laparoscopy.  The da Vinci™ Surgical System places the surgeon’s hands at the control of a state-of-the-art surgical platform, enabling the surgeon to perform even the most complex procedures through a minimally invasive approach.

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™ Surgical 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.

It is important to know that surgery with da Vinci™ does not place a robot at the controls; your surgeon is controlling every aspect of the surgery with the assistance of the da Vinci™ robotic platform. Many complex gynecologic conditions can now be treated effectively without a big incision using the da Vinci™ robotic surgery system:

  • Endometriosis / adenomyosis
  • Abnormal periods (menorrhagia)
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Uterine prolapse / urinary incontinence
  • Gynecologic Cancer
     

Types of robotic procedures include:

  • Myomectomy
  • Hysterectomy
  • Gynecologic Cancer surgery
  • Correction of genital prolapse
