Robotic Assisted Surgery at Physicians to Women – Changing the Way Women Experience Gynecologic Surgery

At some point in a women’s life, she may be faced with gynecologic surgery. While medically necessary, gynecologic surgery can be a major life disruption. Women often face lengthy hospital stays, open surgery, significant abdominal pain, scars and long recovery periods. But now, thanks to breakthrough technology and the skilled doctors at Physicians To Women, Gynecologic surgery can be an entirely different experience. With da Vinci, surgeons can perform a wide range of complex surgical procedures by making tiny incisions – just 1 to 2 centimeters (less than an inch). Aided by magnified, high resolution 3D images of the surgical area, surgeons’ hand, wrist and finger movements are translated into precise movements of the system’s miniaturized instruments.

The da Vinci Surgical System is not a robotic substitute for a surgeon. It cannot be programmed. Just as with traditional surgery and surgical tools, the system can only respond to the direct, real-time input of a surgeon. In increasing numbers women are having and recovering from gynecologic surgery with greater ease, speed and satisfaction.

The most experienced Obstetrics and Gynecology practice in Southwest Virginia, Physicians To Women, stays at the cutting edge of the latest technology with the use of robotic-assisted surgeries in our community. The da Vinci Surgical System can offer multiple advantages over traditional open surgery.
