Da Vinci is an FDA-approved robotic operating technology for treating gynecologic problems, including hysterectomy and fibroids. The system consists of two interactive mechanical arms, a camera arm, a 3D processing system, and a remote control unit.
Dr. Greenspan operates the system through a surgical console placed next to you during your procedure. The movements she makes with the surgical console translate in real-time to the robotic arms, which may hold an interchangeable array of surgical instruments. The arms perform your surgery through small incisions as directed by Dr. Greenspan.
Compared to traditional open surgery, da Vinci robotic surgery offers a number of potential benefits, including:
After robotic surgery, you may be able to resume your normal daily activities more quickly than with traditional surgery.
Dr. Greenspan may use the technology to perform various procedures where you might typically have open surgery. This includes:
The technology also is commonly used to perform a hysterectomy in cases where you have cancer and where you don’t.
Dr. Greenspan may perform the surgery through an incision in your belly button or by making several small incisions around your stomach area. During surgery, she sits at a console next to you.
She operates using tiny instruments, while a camera provides a high-definition, 3D magnified view inside your body. By performing your surgery with the da Vinci system, you may have a shorter hospital stay and fewer complications, according to research.
