GYN Oncologist Uses da Vinci Surgical Robot to Preserve Fertility
Date:6/18/2010

ng surgical and non-surgical. The first approach is treating through medications or hormonal therapy. But for many, options include a hysterectomy or myomectomy. Patients may need a myomectomy instead of a hysterectomy if they have symptomatic fibroids but want to retain their fertility. Common symptoms may be severe bleeding, pelvic pain, difficulty becoming pregnant, or difficulty retaining a pregnancy.

“Traditional laparoscopy limits the patients that may be candidates for minimally invasive surgery. The robot overcomes those limitations therefore allowing a broader spectrum of patients a minimally invasive approach to myomectomy,” Dr. Ridgway added. “We're excited about using robotic technology to treat cases like uterine fibroids, but it's important to provide the best options available when caring for patients.”

The da Vinci® Myomectomy provides a magnified, three-dimensional view enabling the surgeon to perform precise surgery in complex procedures through small surgical incisions. The robot provides the surgeon with the intuitive control, range of motion, fine tissue manipulation capability and 3-d visualization characteristics of open surgery, while simultaneously allowing the surgeon to work through small ports of minimally invasive surgery.

The recovery from a robotic myomectomy is typically a one night hospital stay and varies from person to person. The patient is generally back to work or a normal routine approximately 7 to 10 days versus approximately six weeks for an open incision procedure.
