Artemis OB/GYN - Robotic-Assisted Surgery for Gynecology

Fibroid Removal with Less Pain, Less Blood Loss and Faster recovery with the Aid of a Robot

 

 

 

 

   Fibroids are an irregular firm mass located near the center of the pelvis. Fibroids are most often found during the pelvic exam portion of a routine annual exam. Some women have mild symptoms or no symptoms, while others may experience disruptive to severe symptoms that cause them to schedule a non-routine visit to their OBGYN doctor.
 
   Symptoms of uterine Fibroids can include: heavy or prolonged menstrual periods, pelvic pain, pain during intercourse, frequent urination, abnormal bleeding between periods, and low back pains. One of the more popular surgeries used by the robotic system is called a myomectomy, which is the removal of uterine fibroids.
 
   The da Vinci Robot is now serving as a phenomenal tool for gynecologists to use in what is considered to be the more challenging surgical procedures. Not only is the robot safe and effective, but it is minimally invasive. Using the da Vinci Robot system allows the doctor to have better visualization, improved depth perception and better manipulation allowing for more accuracy with the surgery. This equates to a better operation. 
 
   Using the da Vinci Robotic system allows a gynecologist to minimize abdominal incisions resulting in shorter recovery, less pain and blood loss and shorter hospital stays. 
 
   The robot is also helpful when it comes to suturing. It enables us to sew things up inside the belly by using robotic cams. For patients, the benefits are clear as well. Using the da Vinci Robotic system allows gynecologists to minimize abdominal incisions. 
 
   Gynecologists recommend the da Vinci because it allows patients to maximize their quality of life due to the speedy recovery. We believe that it is extremely rewarding to watch your patients go home the next day and return to regular activities within one to two weeks versus months. With the considering of having less postoperative pain, less recovery time, blood loss reduction, fewer risks of postoperative complications such as infections and a shorter hospital stay, we encourage readers to consider discussing the robot as an option for gynecological surgery with Dr Pemberton and the team at Artemis OB/GYN.
