Robotic Gynecological Surgery

Surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions when other medical treatments aren't an option. Gynecological surgeries may include cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and menorrhagia or excessive bleeding.

Minimally Invasive Options

In recent years, the standard approach for this type of surgery has been using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy. Generally, these procedures result in a longer hospital stay and an increase in pain and discomfort.

Fortunately, the da Vinci® robotic surgery option, available at UnityPoint Health - Methodist | Proctor, provides a less-invasive surgery option. The da Vinci® system allows surgeons to use 1-2 cm incisions and allows surgeons to operate with greater precision and control while minimizing pain and recovery time.
