da Vinci® Laparoscopic Robotic Surgery
At Desert Bloom OBGYN, Dr. David Mainman performs robotic surgery using the da Vinci® system. This allows a minimally invasive option for complex surgical procedures. These robotic surgeries offer many potential benefits over laparasocopic hysterectomy and traditional surgeries, including significantly less pain, less blood loss, fewer complications and risk of infection, shorter hospital stay and faster recovery.
Myomectomy (uterus-sparing removal of fibroids) is often performed using traditional open surgery, meaning an incision is made in the lower abdomen. After removing the uterine fibroids, the gyn surgeon repairs the uterus to minimize potential bleeding, infection and scarring. Proper repair of the uterus is critical to reducing the risk of uterine rupture (tearing) during pregnancy. Myomectomy is often recommended and considered the standard of care for women who want to become pregnant or keep their uterus for other reasons. The da Vinci® myomectomy is a minimally invasive, uterine-sparing procedure that requires only a few tiny incisions so you can get back to your life faster.
Hysterectomy is one of the most effective, least invasive treatment options for a range of uterine conditions. The da Vinci® System provides a superior surgical tool for dissection and removal of lymph nodes during cancer operations, as compared to traditional open or minimally invasive approaches. The da Vinci® surgery for hysterectomy also allows our surgeon better visualization of anatomy, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder. This means our gyn surgeon have a distinct advantage when performing a complex, radical total hysterectomy involving adhesions from prior pelvic surgery or non-localized cancer, or an abdominal hysterectomy.
da Vinci® endometriosis resection allows our gyn surgeon to remove deeply penetrated or widespread endometrial implants, while preserving your uterus. da Vinci®’s 3D, high-definition vision system is key in allowing immense depth and clarity, which is critical when removing deep endometrial tissue implants. Unlike traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci® endometriosis resection robotic surgery offers the added benefit of computer and robotic-assisted technology, minimizing the risk of your endometriosis returning. da Vinci® endometriosis resection offers women many potential benefits, including minimal scarring, low rate of complications and a shorter hospital stay.
