Robotic Surgery | Robot-Assisted Hysterectomy | Plano

The physicians at Women’s Specialists of Plano, 972-379-2416, are among the more experienced gynecologic robotic surgeons in the Plano, Texas area. Several of the doctors at Women’s Specialists underwent additional training on the da Vinci robotic surgery system and have since performed hundreds of minimally invasive robot-assisted procedures such hysterectomy and mymoectomy.

Medpage Today, an online medical news site, published an article titled, “Robotic Surgery Benefits Seen for Hysterectomy.” The article highlights recent findings that robot-assisted hysterectomy may in fact be a safer surgical option for patients with a large uterus and underlying medical conditions. Historically, robotic surgery was seen as optimal for a patient with an average sized uterus and normal pathology. Patients with a large uterus and more complex pathology were seen as better candidates for a traditional hysterectomy.

A recent review of five community practices through the country found robotic surgery, specifically robot-assisted hysterectomy, can produce favorable outcomes for more complex cases. It was shown that robotic surgery could be associated with fewer complications and less blood loss compared to traditional open-abdomen hysterectomy.

The da Vinci robotic surgery allows 3D images of the pelvis and mirrors the precise hand and wrist movements of the surgeon while eliminating the possibility of slight hand tremors.

If you are interested in learning more about robot-assisted hysterectomy, please contact Women’s Specialists of Plano in Plano, Texas.
