What Is a Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery?
A minimally invasive surgery involves a doctor performing a procedure through the smallest opening in the skin to reduce recovery time. It is often performed with the assistance of narrow instruments and a tiny camera, called a laparoscope, to perform the procedure through small slits of skin. In laparoscopic surgery, small cuts are made around the navel to access the ovaries, cervix, and uterus. While the patient is under general anesthesia during the procedure, the recovery process is far less severe than those who received traditional abdominal surgery. Dr. Bailey and Dr. Welborne at Legacy OB/GYN are skilled in the most advanced surgery techniques including the use of the daVinci robotic surgery system and are able to provide effective treatment for surgical candidates.
What Is a Robotic Laparoscopic Hysterectomy?
In the past, women who required a hysterectomy would undergo a full abdominal incision in order for the surgeon to access the uterus to be extracted. This procedure would be quite painful and require a lot of aftercare and healing. As technology has developed, medical providers are not able to offer robot-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy. Using a computer, and the daVinci robotic technology, doctors are able to have an additional level of surgical control in order to provide precise incisions in which the body can more readily recover from. At Legacy OB/GYN, Dr. Bailey and Dr. Welborne are experienced in the use of the robot-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy to ensure that their patients receive state of the art surgical care.
What is Robotic Laparoscopic Myomectomy?
When a woman requires uterine fibroids to be removed, minimally invasive surgery is preferred. The daVinci robotic surgery system and a live video feed, surgeons are able to remove these fibroids with the least invasion possible. While not all surgery is welcome of wanted, reducing the level of invasion to the patient often ensures the easiest and quickest recovery as well as reduced risk of scarring and infection. As technology continues to develop, the doctors at Legacy OB/GYN will continue to work to provide women with the most effective and least pain causing interventions possible.
