Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery

You can count on The Women’s Center of Bluffton Hospital to have you feeling better in no time. Our vast experience means better outcomes for the patient.

Robotic-assisted surgery is currently the most advanced approach to surgical care. It is designed to give surgeons a greater range of motion, improved dexterity, enhanced visualization and better access to hard-to-reach surgical sites. Robotic surgery uses a surgical “robot” that is entirely controlled by the surgeon. The robot provides a natural extension of the surgeon’s eyes and hands. The surgeon is in complete control, because the robot cannot act on its own.

In combining the advantages of open surgical procedures and laparoscopy, robotic surgery allows physicians to perform more complex procedures with greater control and precision.

By providing surgeons with superior visualization, enhanced dexterity, greater precision and ergonomic comfort, the da Vinci® Surgical System makes it possible for more surgeons to perform minimally invasive procedures involving complex dissection or reconstruction. This ultimately raises the standard of care for complex surgeries, translating into numerous potential patient benefits including:

  • Faster recovery
  • Reduced hospitalizations
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Reduced pain

Gynecologic Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive alternative for open hysterectomies and other gynecological procedures typically associated with large incisions and long recovery times. At The Women’s Center of Bluffton Hospital, our team of specialized surgeons use the da Vinci® surgical system for procedures, such as: 

  • Hysterectomy
  • Endometriosis excision
  • Removal of scar tissue or adhesions
  • Bladder lift
  • Repair of cystoceles ( paravaginal defect)
  • Removal of ovarian cyst

 

Our experienced professionals also perform robotic surgeries for patients with urogynecologic conditions such as pelvic floor disorders, pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence.
