Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery Q & A

What is minimally invasive robotic surgery?

Minimally invasive robotic surgery is performed not through large incisions with traditional instruments, but through tiny, quarter-inch incisions with miniaturized surgical instruments mounted on robotic arms.

The arms allow your surgeon to work with the highest level of precision and the widest range of motion. The arms also feature 3D cameras that allow them to see inside as they work.

What type of minimally invasive gynecological surgeries are available?

The team of surgeons at Alliance OB/GYN can perform a wide range of gynecological surgeries using minimally invasive equipment, including surgeries like:

  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomy
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Infertility treatments
  • Pelvic organ prolapse

In addition, your Alliance OB/GYN physician may decide to perform minimally invasive robotic surgery with a thin viewing tube called a laparoscope, simply to look into your pelvic organs to determine the source of pelvic pain.

This procedure is called a diagnostic laparoscopy or hysteroscopy. If the Alliance team encounters any small problem areas during this exploratory procedure, they can quickly and easily make minor repairs.

What are the advantages of minimally invasive robotic surgery?

Minimally invasive robotic surgery offers many advantages over older types of gynecological surgery that almost guaranteed unsightly scars and long recovery times.

Minimally invasive robotic surgery offers benefits including:

  • Decreased risk of bleeding
  • Reduced risk of surgical error
  • Shorter surgery times
  • Minimized surgical scarring
  • Shortened recovery time

All in all, minimally invasive robotic surgeries are safer, more efficient, and more effective than surgeries performed with older techniques and equipment.

How long does it take to recover from minimally invasive robotic surgery?

Every procedure is different. However, in general, you recover from minimally invasive robotic surgery relatively quickly because your incisions are few and small.

To give your body time to heal, you need to rest for at least the first few days after your surgery. Usually, you can begin to resume your normal routine after about a week of rest. If your surgery involved a surgical repair, you can expect to be fully recovered after between three and six weeks. After a diagnostic gynecologic minimally invasive surgery, you typically recover within just a couple weeks.

Regardless of averages, make sure that after your procedure, you follow all of the advice and instructions of your Alliance OB/GYN team.
