Robotic Gynecological Surgery
Banner Health uses robotic surgery as an innovative way offer patients minimally invasive gynecological surgery, with faster recovery times and less scarring.
Robotic surgery allows surgeons to make dime-sized incisions which means less trauma to the body and less pain for patients. Robotic surgery can get you back to your normal routine faster and easier.
Banner Health uses robotic surgery for numerous procedures:
- Removal of the uterus (hysterectomy): The second most common surgery in the U.S.
Robotic surgery allows your surgeon a better view, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder.
- Supracervical hysterectomy: Removes the uterus and leaves the cervix intact
- Fibroid removal (myomectomy): Robotic surgery's precision can help in the reconstruction of the uterine wall, regardless of the size or location of fibroids.
- Treatment of prolapsed (fallen) uterus (sacrocolpopexy): A procedure to insert mesh to hold the vagina if a woman has a prolapsed uterus.
- Removal of the fallopian tubes and ovaries (salpingo-oophorectomy)
