The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small, precise incisions.
Benefits for patients may include:
- Less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Shorter recovery time
- Quicker return to normal daily activities
- Often offers better clinical outcomes
At Cleveland Clinic, operative times for robotic-assisted procedures have been comparable to laparotomy, with less blood loss, fewer complications and shorter hospital stays.
According to Drs. Tommaso Falcone and Stephen Zimberg, leaders in performing minimally invasive gynecological procedures, “Advancements in robot-assisted surgery allow us to bring new treatment options to a larger group of patients. For example, women who were previously not candidates for laparoscopic myomectomy to remove uterine fibroids now have an option that can preserve their uterus and potentially their fertility. This is a huge step forward for women's health."
