Minimally invasive surgery
Today doctors can perform many gynecologic procedures using minimally invasive laparoscopic or robotic-assisted surgery, possibly with da Vinci technology. Both minimally invasive approaches require one or a few small incisions that doctors use to insert surgical equipment and a camera for viewing. In laparoscopic surgery, doctors use special long-handled tools to perform surgery while viewing magnified images from the laparoscope (camera) on a video screen.
All of the physicians at Eastern OBGYN are proficient in the use of the da Vinci system.
What is a da Vinci system?
The da Vinci is a surgical system comprised of three components: surgeon console, patient-side cart, and vision cart.
