Da Vinci Gynecologic Procedures In Miami
The traditional type of surgery consists of a long incision that is made in your abdomen and is large enough for your surgeon to insert the instruments, and their hands to visualize the surgery through the incision. For years, open surgery has been common to many gynecologic procedures, but has certain defects due to the large incision. For women facing gynecologic surgery, other less invasive options are available.

laparoscopy is the most common minimally invasive surgery. This surgery uses a thin, lighted tube that is inserted through a few small incision in the belly to view the abdominal or female pelvic organs. The tiny camera attached to the instrument projects images onto a video monitor in the operating room which guides surgeons as they operate.
da Vinci® Surgery
da Vinci Surgery is another minimally invasive option for women facing gynecologic surgery. With da Vinci, surgeons make just a few small incisions instead of a large one. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special miniature wristed instruments that bend and rotate to a greater degree than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci allows your surgeon to operate with enhanced sight, accuracy, control.
Medical Robotic Technology
State-of-the-art da Vinci uses the most modern surgical and robotic technology and is beneficial for performing complex surgery. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which exchanges their hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of small instruments inside your body. Although it is often referred to as “robotic”, it cannot function without the doctor.
