The da Vinci Surgery system is an advanced technology. This revolutionary system allows surgeons to conduct operations through only a few small incisions, or one abdominal incision. Plus, this surgical system features a 3D HD magnified view into the patient’s body, a special console that allows your doctor to sit during the operation, and specialized instruments that are far more flexible than the human hand.
Powered by robotic technology, the da Vinci system enables your physician to perform surgery with greater precision and improved outcomes. The wristed instruments on the machine afford the use of tiny tools to view and operate inside a patient’s body. A laparoscope, which is a thin tube with a tiny camera and light at the end, gives your doctor the opportunity to see better and perform with greater skill as he guides the instruments during surgery.
More conservative treatment options such as medications and minor procedures may be successful at improving the symptoms of some gynecological conditions; others are more resistant to treatment. To safely and effectively treat severe conditions such as heavy, irregular bleeding and uterine cancer, your doctor may recommend surgery.
Traditional open gynecological surgery was the standard for many decades, requiring a large incision across the uterus to access the surrounding organs and structures. This type of surgery was painful and traumatic, came with a risk of infection, and demanded a lengthy recovery period.
With the da Vinci surgery system, Dr. DelCharco is able to conduct gynecological surgery with smaller 1-2 cm incisions with greater precision, less blood loss, reduced pain, reduced risk of infection, and shorter recovery periods. This type of surgery is ideal for gynecological conditions such as endometriosis, cervical cancer, menorrhagia, uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, and uterine prolapse.
