Skilled Surgeons Perform da Vinci® Robotic Surgery
When you are experiencing a gynecologic condition, surgery is often the last resort after treatments including lifestyle changes, medications, and other avenues have been explored and proven unsuccessful. Fortunately, Carolina OB/GYN in Rock Hill, SC, features surgeons trained in offering da Vinci® robotic surgery. Through this form of minimally invasive surgery, we are able to effectively execute complex procedures with far greater control and precision. This not only treats your condition but offers practical benefits when compared to traditional open surgery. As our patient, feel confident that we always place your needs and preferences first while making sound recommendations to improve your quality of life.
What is da Vinci® Robotic Surgery
Unlike the name suggests, your surgery is not being performed by a robot. Instead, a highly trained surgeon is at the helm to conduct your surgery using:
- 3d high-definition vision system
- Special instruments
- Computer software
During the procedure, your surgeon resides at a console and controls four robotic arms. Depending on the procedure being performed, one or a few small incisions – only 1 to 2 cm – are made in a specific area of your skin. A camera is inserted to provide a magnified, close-up view of the area being operated on in your body. Tiny instruments are also inserted through these openings, with the surgeon remaining in complete control. He or she manipulates these arms which bend and rotate to mimic the way a human hand and wrist would move, but with even more delicacy and accuracy.
