Da Vinci Surgical System
Minimally Invasive Surgery Options
Omni Medical Center for Women has seen significant evolutions that have transformed the current surgical system as we know it. It always has been and continues to be our goal to provide patients with minimally invasive surgery options. This is why we are excited to offer one of the most groundbreaking alternatives to “open” surgery for patients who may require gynecologic surgery. The da Vinci® Surgical System is a tool that utilizes an advanced, robotic, computer, and optical technologies to assist your surgeon with your operation.
Conditions Treated With Robotic Surgery:
- Hysterectomy, With or Without Removal of Ovaries
- Myomectomy (Removal of Fibroids)
- Ovarian Cysts
- Pelvic Adhesive Disease
- Pelvic Prolapse
What is the da Vinci Surgical System?
The da Vinci Surgical System has a 3D high-definition (3D-HD) vision system, special instruments, and computer software that allow your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity, and control. The 3D-HD image is highly magnified, so your surgeon has a close-up view of the area he or she is operating on. The da Vinci instruments have mechanical wrists that bend and rotate to mimic the movements of the human wrist – allowing your surgeon to make small, precise movements inside your body. And, da Vinci software can minimize the effects of a surgeon’s hand tremors on instrument movements.
Since its introduction, the da Vinci Surgery System has greatly reduced the number of open surgeries for common operations such as hysterectomy. Thanks to da Vinci technology, more patients have been offered minimally invasive surgery than at any other time in history.
