da Vinci Robotic Surgery

da Vinci Robotic Surgery offers women the latest in minimally-invasive surgery options to conditions that require surgical treatment to correct. Dr. Webb prefers this method of treatment when possible, because it is associated with shorter hospital stays, less blood loss and fewer post-operative fevers compared to other surgical options.

The da Vinci System is a sophisticated robotic platform designed to expand the surgeon’s capabilities — and for the first time — offer a minimally invasive option for major surgery. With da Vinci, small incisions are used to introduce miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera.

Seated at the da Vinci console, Dr. Webb views a magnified, high-resolution 3D image of the surgical site. At the same time, state-of-the-art robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate Dr. Webb’s hand movements into precise micro-movements of the da Vinci instruments. The System cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. Rather, the da Vinci System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from Dr. Webb.

da Vinci® Hysterectomy surgery is associated with fewer complications, shorter hospital stays, and less blood loss compared with open surgery and traditional laparoscopic surgery.

da Vinci® Myomectomy

Many patients who are having a myomectomy to remove uterine fibroids will be candidates for a minimally invasive, robot-assisted procedure called da Vinci® myomectomy. Special cameras provide a 3D HD view inside your uterus, and the surgery is performed through a few small incisions in your abdomen using robotic technology controlled by your surgeon at a nearby console. The instruments used in da Vinci® surgeries have the capability of rotating and bending in ways that the human hand and wrist cannot.

da Vinci® myomectomy surgery is associated with shorter hospital stays, less blood loss and fewer postoperative fevers as compared with open abdominal surgery. It is also associated with less blood loss as compared with traditional laparoscopic surgery.

da Vinci® Sacrocolpopexy

Many patients who are having a sacrocolpopexy to repair pelvic organ prolapse will be candidates for a minimally invasive, robot-assisted procedure called da Vinci® sacrocolpopexy. During sacrocolpopexy, a surgical mesh is inserted permanently to hold the vagina in its correct anatomical position. With da Vinci® sacrocolpopexy, special cameras provide a 3D HD view inside your uterus, and the surgery is performed through a few small incisions in your abdomen using robotic technology controlled by your surgeon at a nearby console.
