Robotic surgery in gynecology is laparoscopic surgery minimally invasive assisted by a robot, a surgery especially suitable for carrying out highly complex surgical interventions.

In the operating room, during the operation, the surgeon sits at a console and controls a camera that has been introduced through an 8 mm tube through a millimeter incision in the abdomen of the patient to be operated on. Thanks to the camera, the surgeon obtains on the screen a clear, enlarged and three-dimensional view in high definition of the area to be operated on.

By means of robotic arms and articulated forceps, the robot moves in real time and with absolute fidelity and precision the movements of the surgeon's hand.

Benefits of robotic surgery

The use of the robot provides the surgeon with greater safety to treat anatomical areas of difficult access, facilitates an enlarged and clear view of the interior of the patient, ensures stable and tremor-free handling of surgical instruments (forceps, scissors, etc.) and enables maximum precision of the surgeon's hand movements.

  • Natural hand tremors are avoided and gains in precision.
  • The incisions are millimetric and the scars almost non-existent.
  • Bleeding is minimal
  • Postoperative recovery is less painful and fewer pain relievers and medication are needed.
  • The risk of postoperative infections is reduced.
  • The hospital stay is shorter.
  • Returning to daily activities is quicker and easier.

For what type of interventions is gynecological robotic surgery suitable?

All gynecological laparoscopic surgeries They can be carried out both by conventional surgery and by robotic surgery, but the robotic system can be especially indicated as a support for the performance of more complex surgical interventions in which it is essential to ensure maximum safety and precision.

  • Cervical Cancer Treatment
  • Ovarian Cancer Treatment
  • Endometrial Cancer Treatment
  • Hysterectomy (surgery to remove the uterus)
  • Myomectomy (surgery to remove uterine fibroids)
  • Treatment of deep endometriosis
  • Urinary Incontinence

Women's CD, experts in gynecological robotic surgery

Robotic surgery is not surgery performed by a robot. It is a minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery that must be directed and carried out by expert surgeons.

Both conventional laparoscopic and robotic surgery, in which the robot accurately replicates the movements of the surgeon, are safe therapeutic options, but must be performed by highly specialized and experienced medical professionals.

At Womens' CD we have a team of highly specialized surgeons, with adequate training, essential expertise, and extensive experience in minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery.

    1. I have very painful lichen sclerosus, I would like a visit with a gynecologist that treats the issue since almost everyone has visited me from this office

      1. Dear Rosa, it would be necessary to make a face-to-face assessment of what is happening even though the symptoms are suggestive of lichen scleroatrophicus. We recommend that you request a visit with Dr. D. Dexeus, an expert in vulvar pathology who will be able to guide you appropriately.
