What to Expect from da Vinci Robotic Surgical Treatment for Endometriosis
Endometriosis is a troubling condition for millions of American women. It occurs when uterine tissue spreads to other structures in the reproductive system, such as the cervix or ovaries. When it does, it can cause extreme discomfort and excessive bleeding during each menstrual cycle, and may interfere with conception and pregnancy. In the past, medical intervention meant undergoing invasive surgery that resulted in conspicuous scarring and a lengthy recovery. With the da Vinci robotic surgery system from Riverside Community Hospital, however, patients can now receive safe and effective treatment with minimal complications.
What is da Vinci robotic surgery?
The da Vinci robotic surgery system is an advanced treatment method that utilizes computerized robotic assistance and endoscopic technology during each operation. The surgeon controls the robotic device and its instruments while seated away from the patient. However, he has full visual capabilities due to the presence of a endoscope that transmits real-time imagery of the procedure. During the entirety of the operation, the surgeon dictates each movement of the robotic equipment.
How does da Vinci robotic surgery aid endometriosis treatment?
Endometrial tissue can grow on delicate reproductive structures. To successfully remove this tissue without harming organs, exact precision is essential. While surgeons can exhibit tremendous skill in successfully performing procedures of this kind, the da Vinci robotic surgery system completely eliminates any degree of error. This affords patients the highest quality care to treat and manage their endometriosis.
Who is eligible for da Vinci robotic surgery?
If your endometriosis is causing debilitating pain or fertility difficulties, you may want to ask a physician about da Vinci robotic surgery. In addition to the accuracy with which the da Vinci robotic surgery system can perform surgery, its minimally invasive incisions can help you recover from your procedure more quickly than you would after traditional surgery. Don’t let endometriosis hinder your life; see for yourself how the da Vinci robotic surgery system can help you regain your health and happiness.
