Robotic Gynecological Surgery
Benign and Oncology Treatments
Our physician team specializes in compassionate patient care, the latest benign and cancer treatment options, innovative research and highly advanced procedures, such as robotic surgery. These physicians are some of the most experienced gynecologic robotic surgeons in the world.
The Florida Hospital Global Robotics Institute offers the latest and most effective minimally invasive gynecologic surgery in Orlando for residents of Central Florida and the surrounding regions. In the past, gynecologic surgery often meant major surgery, which not only left scarring, but also had numerous complications, including the risk of infection. In the past 15 years, however, great strides have been made in minimally invasive surgery, which leaves little scarring and drastically decreases the risk of complications.
According to the American Cancer Society, one in three women can expect to have some form of cancer during their lifetime.
Minimally invasive surgery allows skilled surgeons to insert precision instrumentation through a relatively small incision or a series of incisions. Using these instruments, doctors can diagnose, biopsy and remove tumors, destroy cancerous growths and relieve the discomfort and pain associated with some forms of cancer. Minimally invasive surgery may be used alone or in combination with other treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
One of the most revolutionary procedures is robotic surgery. A new form of minimally invasive surgery, the surgeon uses the Gynecologic Oncology Center’s state-of-the-art da Vinci® robotic technology to perform the surgery through several small incisions. Micro-instruments are inserted through the incisions and real-time 3D imaging is used, allowing the surgeon to make precise cuts, keeping surrounding nerves and tissues from being damaged. The benefits include a shorter hospital stay, less pain, decreased blood loss and scarring, fewer infections and complications and the ability to return to a normal routine more quickly.
The benefits of minimally invasive surgery are a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and less scarring. Patients are able to return to a normal life sooner, since the surgery is not invasive.
Minimally invasive surgery isn't for every patient's individual diagnosis or condition.
