Urologic surgery is a delicate endeavor, as both sexual function and urinary function depend on the integrity of the reproductive organs. Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center offers cutting-edge surgical care using the da Vinci robotic surgery system. If you are experiencing urologic or gynecologic dysfunction that can be treated surgically, ask your physician whether the da Vinci Surgical System is a good option for you.
Hysterectomy, or removal of the uterus, is a surgical procedure used to treat a variety of conditions, including uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and cancer. The traditional method of performing this surgery is known as an “open hysterectomy,” during which a long incision is made in the abdomen in order to grant access to the internal reproductive organs. This type of procedure is incredibly taxing on the body and carries a number of risks, including nerve damage and trauma to surrounding tissues. Fortunately, the da Vinci Surgical System enables surgeons to work through small incisions of less than two centimeters while providing unmatched control and precision. This tends to lead to faster recovery times, reduced postoperative discomfort, and better outcomes.
Similar benefits are noted in da Vinci prostate surgery, as the minimally invasive robotic technique helps prevent surgical complications. The area surrounding the prostate is densely packed with nerves and blood vessels, making open surgery painful and difficult. Using the da Vinci Surgical System, however, a surgeon can avoid vital structures, reducing the risk of incontinence and sexual dysfunction.
