Robotic Gynecological Surgery

Allen surgeon, Dr. Kaaki, is specially trained with da Vinci. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.

With Allen's da Vinci robotic surgery you can expect significantly less pain, less blood loss, less scarring, shorter recovery time, a faster return to normal daily activities, and in many cases, better clinical outcomes.

Robotics at Allen Hospital

We've been the leader in robotic surgery in Waterloo since 2010 performing the most robotic surgeries in the Cedar Valley.

Gynecological surgeries performed using the da Vinci system:

  • Hysterectomy for benign or malignant disease (common symptoms include fibroids, abnormal bleeding or endometriosis)
  • Adhesions
  • Myomectomy
  • Pelvic Relaxation Procedures (such as sacrocolpopexy, uterosacral ligament vaginal vault suspension)
  • Chronic Pelvic Pain Management

Robotic vs. Conventional Laparoscopic Surgery

Robotic techniques can overcome many limitations posed by conventional laparoscopic surgery. Robotic surgery is performed through dime-sized incisions near the abdomen. Fully articulating robotic arms mimic the motions of hands for better dexterity and control, whereas conventional laparoscopic instruments are scopes and long sticks that can't go around corners. Robotic surgery offers surgeons incredible clarity with high-definition 3D pictures, resulting in better visualization and precision. Many patients are back to doing what they love within a week after surgery.
