Dr. Obianwu is very happy to offer this new technology at Virtua to women across South Jersey; schedule an appointment with Alliance OB/GYN online or over the phone today.
Dr. Chike Obianwu is the first surgeon at Virtua to offer a new advanced minimally invasive surgical option for hysterectomy, known as vNOTES (vaginal natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery). This advanced gynecologic technique provides many benefits to female patients, such as a shorter hospital stay, less postoperative pain, a faster recovery time and no visible scarring.
Dr. Obianwu has specialized training and is one of only a few surgeon(s) in the State of New Jersey performing this advanced technique. He has been offering vNOTES to enhance patient care for women. To date he has completed a series of cases with excellent outcomes.
The vNOTES technique, which uses Laparoscopy via the vagina as a surgical access route, is the newest approach to hysterectomy procedures. For the surgery, a device known as the Alexis GelPOINT/GelPORT is placed through the vagina into the pelvic cavity, giving access to the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries.
The vNOTES device is the means by which the abdomen is inflated with carbon dioxide gas to give the surgeon the space needed to see and operate. Laparoscopic scope and instruments are inserted through the device, allowing surgeons to operate with the utmost precision and visualization. Once the surgery is completed, the vNOTES device is removed and the gas is evacuated.
vNotes can be used to treat multiple gynecological conditions including ovarian cysts, fibroids, abnormal uterine bleeding, adenomyosis and tubal sterilization.
Our patients have had great outcomes from the procedure and appreciate the fact that they can return to their busy lives quickly.
