Some gynecologic conditions may require surgery to treat effectively. At Orange Blossom Women’s Group, we offer robotic-assisted gynecologic surgery as a minimally invasive option that helps you receive the best care with shorter recovery times. To learn more about robotic-assisted surgery or to schedule an appointment, call our office in Trinity, FL.
What Is Robotic-Assisted Gynecologic Surgery?
Robotic-assisted surgery is rapidly growing as a favorable alternative to open surgery to treat conditions such as certain types of cancers, endometriosis and uterine prolapse. With robotic assistance, our doctor can perform surgery with greater precision and much smaller incisions than traditional surgery would allow.
The procedure is performed with robotic arms that are controlled by our specialist. A small camera will allow Dr. Bardach to observe the entire area in magnified detail.
What Are the Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Gynecologic Surgery?
Robotic-assisted surgery comes with some considerable advantages over traditional open surgery, including:
- Reduced recovery time
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Fewer risks
Because the camera used during the procedure allows for higher visibility, robotic-assisted surgery also tends to result in much less blood loss. In addition, the detailed, magnified view of the surgical site greatly reduces the risk of complications.
What to Expect
Robotic-assisted gynecologic surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. Depending on the type of surgery you undergo, you will likely need to stay in the hospital for a couple of days following your procedure.
Dr. Bardach will help you understand everything you need to know during your consultation. Once your surgery is finished, you will need to take care to carefully follow post-operative instructions to help ensure the quickest and most successful recovery period. Most patients return for at least one follow-up appointment to ensure they are recovering properly.
Am I a Good Candidate?
A patient’s candidacy for robotic-assisted surgery will ultimately depend on Dr. Bardach’s decision following your consultation. In general, however, good candidates include those in a healthy weight range whose bodies can tolerate general anesthesia. The best way to find out if robotic-assisted surgery is right for you is to speak with our doctor in person. Regardless of your situation, we will find the best treatment option to suit your needs.
