Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery for Women's Conditions
Robotic surgery is the most advanced type of minimally invasive surgery available today. And, Rose Medical Center is among a small number of hospitals in the region using the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System to treat women's health conditions. In fact, Rose Medical Center performs more robotic gynecological surgeries than any other hospital in Colorado.
Using the robotic system, our team can perform the following surgeries:
- Surgery to remove the uterus or womb; used as a treatment options for serval women's conditions, including vaginal prolapse (falling or slipping of the vagina), endometriosis, uterine fibroids, heavy menstrual bleeding and cancer
- Treatment for vaginal and uterine prolapse (falling or slipping of the uterus) where a piece of mesh is used to hold the vagina in the correct anatomical position
- Removal of uterine fibroids (non-cancerous growths in the uterine wall). A primary benefit of the da Vinci Myomectomy is the opportunity for future pregnancies following this procedure.
How da Vinci Works
Through a high-tech control module, surgeons move miniaturized operating instruments that allow for extremely precise movements. In fact, robotic surgeons have a greater range of motion, they can see more clearly, and they have better dexterity when using the da Vinci system.
Advantages for Our Patients
And for our patients, robotic surgery has many advantages over traditional or open surgery, including:
- Smaller incisions
- Less blood loss
- Less pain
- Reduced risk of infection
- Shorter hospital stay
- Quicker recovery & return to regular activity
- Less scarring
