Doctors at KIMS perform robotic-assisted surgery for a number of gynaecologic conditions using the da Vinci Surgical Robot, which enables surgeons to perform with unmatched precision and control – using only a few small incisions.
Robotic surgery can be used to treat some ovarian cysts and masses, prolapse (falling) of pelvic organs, some fibroids, heavy uterine bleeding, cervical and endometrial cancer and some cases of endometriosis.
Robotic surgical procedures at KIMS include hysterectomy, myomectomy, sacrocolpopexy, removal of ovarian cysts and masses alongside treatment of cervical and endometrial cancer.
At KIMS Gynecologists have the benefit of using the da Vinci™ Surgical System, which enables surgeons to perform with unmatched precision and control – using only a few small incisions. It is one of the newest technologies available for the treatment of gynecologic problems including hysterectomy and ovarian surgery for cancer and other conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse. The daVinci system offers all the benefits of laparoscopic surgery along with increased precision and effectiveness. Patients undergoing laproscopic procedures typically experience less pain, have fewer instances of infection and recover more quickly than those undergoing open surgery.
For most patients, robotic surgery can offer numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal hysterectomy, particularly when performing more challenging procedures like radical hysterectomy for gynecologic cancer or sacrocolpopexy for pelvic organ prolapse.
For patients, robotic hysterectomy can offer numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal hysterectomy, particularly when performing more challenging procedures like radical hysterectomy for gynecologic cancer. Potential benefits include: significantly less pain, less blood loss, fewer complications, less scarring, shorter hospital stay and faster return to normal daily activities. Moreover, robotic hysterectomy provides the surgeon with a superior surgical tool for dissection and removal of lymph nodes during cancer operations, as compared to traditional open or minimally invasive approaches. Robotic hysterectomy also allows your surgeon better visualization of anatomy, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder. This means that surgeons have a distinct advantage when performing a complex, radical hysterectomy involving adhesions from prior pelvic surgery or non-localized cancer, or an abdominal hysterectomy.
Prolapse (or falling) of any pelvic floor organ (vagina, uterus, bladder, rectum) occurs when the connective tissues within the body cavity are weak and unable to hold the structure in its natural orientation.The weakening of connective tissues accelerates with age, after child birth, with weight gain and strenuous physical labor. Women experiencing this condition typically have problems with urinary incontinence, vaginal ulceration, sexual dysfunction or having a bowel movement.A sacrocolpopexy is a procedure that uses a mesh to hold the vagina in the correct anatomical position. This procedure can also be done in conjunction with a hysterectomy to repair a uterine prolapse condition. Sacrocolpopexy has traditionally been performed with one of two approaches: open surgery or conventional laparoscopy. Fortunately, less invasive options are available. Some gynecologic procedures enable surgeons to access the target anatomy using a vaginal approach, which may not require an external incision. But for complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci System can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
Our surgeons are committed to providing the best treatment option for every individual patient usingRobotic-Assisted Radical Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. While radical hysterectomy or abdominal hysterectomy performed using the da Vinci Surgical System is considered safe and effective, these procedures may not be appropriate for every patient.
Robotic assisted surgery for benign gynecological tumors provides our surgeons with a groundbreaking alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. It enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.
da Vinci Endometriosis Resection allows your surgeon to perform a thorough removal of deeply penetrated or widespread endometrial implants – while preserving your uterus. Unlike conventional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci Endometriosis Resection offers the added benefit of computer and robotic-assisted technology, with the goal of minimizing the risk of your endometriosis returning.
