Robotic Surgery Q & A

Is robotic surgery safe?

When people consider robotic surgery, they may envision a blocky silver robot hovering over them wielding sharp, shiny tools. In reality, robotic surgery is a highly precise surgical approach that’s completely controlled by a human surgeon. 

The South Valley Women’s Health Care team proudly offers robotic surgery using the da Vinci® surgical system, an industry-leading surgical platform with an excellent safety track record. This platform consists of three separate components, including: 

Patient cart

This device holds all of the surgical tools needed to perform your procedure. It has robotic arms that move in incredibly precise ways. The patient cart sits beside your bed throughout the procedure. 

Vision cart

This device holds the equipment needed to capture and transmit real-time imaging of your internal structures. It’s also responsible for the communication that occurs between all components. 

Surgeon console

This is where your human surgeon sits. They can see your internal tissue structures and maneuver the surgical instruments remotely. 

Working together, these components enable precise, safe surgical alterations. 

What kinds of conditions can robotic surgery treat?

Robotic surgery is used in many different fields, including gynecology. Some of the conditions that align well with robotic surgery include:

  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Hysterectomy
  • Ovarian cystectomy
  • Pelvic reconstruction surgery
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding

If robotic surgery is a good fit for your needs, your specialist explains the pros and cons of this and every other treatment option. 

What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery is an outstanding way to perform incredibly complex tissue alterations with a high degree of precision. The robotic arms that hold the surgical tools can achieve flexibility and dexterity that even the most experienced and skilled human hands can’t match. 

Robotic arms don’t get tired. They don’t suffer tremors or twitching, and they can hold a position for as long as necessary. 

Robotic surgery is also a form of minimally invasive surgery. This means you have smaller incisions, shorter recovery times, and a lower risk of bleeding. All of these factors combine to explain why many surgeons prefer robotic surgery when it’s the right solution for a patient’s needs.
