The doctors at Care for Women can treat a range of gynecologic conditions – from chronic pelvis pain to abnormal bleeding – minimally invasively with the da Vinci Surgical System. Through a da Vinci procedure, which requires only a few small incisions, you can get back to life faster – without the usual recovery following major surgery.
The da Vinci Surgical System is an innovative alternative to open surgery and a highly useful tool for laparoscopic surgery.
- Smaller incisions
- Less pain
- Shorter hospital stay
- Faster recovery time
Only you and your doctor can decide whether da Vinci Surgery may be right for you. Some symptoms and conditions that may require a hysterectomy include:
- Pelvic pain
- Abnormal bleeding
- Falling uterus or bladder
Robotic surgeries are performed at the Norman Regional HealthPlex off Interstate 35 and Tecumseh Road.
How It Works
The da Vinci Surgical System is a sophisticated robotic designed to enable complex surgery using a minimally invasive approach. The system consists of a surgeon’s console, a patient-side cart with four robotic arms, a 3D HD vision system and EndoWrist® instruments.
The da Vinci System is designed to seamlessly translate the surgeon's hand movements into more precise movements of the EndoWrist instruments. The da Vinci System’s high-resolution 3D viewer is designed to provide surgeons with an immersive experience. The targeted anatomy appears at high magnification, in brilliant color and with natural depth of field.
To perform a procedure, the surgeon uses the console’s master controls to maneuver the patient-side cart’s four robotic arms, which securely hold the EndoWrist instruments and high-resolution endoscopic camera.
