Robotic Surgery Specialist

Robotic surgery sounds like something out of a futuristic movie, but these phenomenal systems have been evolving for over three decades. Today’s refined robotic systems use cutting-edge technology to safely perform minimally-invasive surgery. The doctors at Rosh Maternal & Fetal Medicine have years of experience using robotic surgery for many gynecologic procedures. If you wonder whether your gynecologic condition could be treated with robotic surgery, call their office in the Midtown East area of New York City, or schedule a consultation online.

Robotic Surgery Q & A

How does robotic surgery work?

Robotic surgery enhances the expertise of the surgeons at Rosh Maternal & Fetal Medicine with a surgical system that gives them the ability to perform more precise maneuvers than are possible with standard surgery.

Robotic systems perform minimally-invasive surgery, which is different from standard surgery, because it only needs several small incisions that are usually one-half inch long or less. The surgical instruments are contained in long, thin tubes inserted through the tiny incisions.

The key piece of equipment -- a hysteroscope or laparoscope -- contains a powerful light and high-definition camera that give the surgeon a magnified and three-dimensional view of the surgical area.

With the diverse types of instruments available, minimally-invasive robotic surgery can be used for multiple purposes: to enable an accurate diagnosis by closely examining organs, perform biopsies, and surgically treat the problem.

What are the advantages of robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery operates on cutting-edge technology that’s completely controlled by your surgeon, yet improves on human abilities. In a robotic system, the surgical tools inserted into the body are robotically connected to highly-sensitive controllers manipulated by the surgeon’s hand and fingers.

The robotic system translates the surgeon’s hand motions into more precise movements that can’t be accomplished by even the most expert human hands. The robotic arms can also fit into small, confined spaces in your body, where they perform surgery without pushing against surrounding tissues.

The zoom and high-definition capabilities of the camera give your surgeon a superior image of the surgical site. Robotic surgery provides better visualization than can be achieved with other types of viewing devices typically used during surgery.

What health benefits are gained with minimally-invasive surgery?

The small incisions used for minimally-invasive surgery cause significantly less trauma to your body than traditional open surgery. The health benefits you gain include:

  • Less postoperative pain
  • Quicker healing and recovery
  • Less blood loss
  • Minimal scarring
  • Lower risk of infection

What types of gynecologic surgeries can be performed with robotic surgery?

Most types of gynecologic surgeries that used to be done with open surgery can now be performed using robotic surgery. A few examples include:

  • Myomectomy: removal of uterine fibroids while keeping the uterus intact
  • Hysterectomy: partial or total removal of the uterus
  • Ovarian cystectomy: removal of cysts in ovaries
  • Salpingo-oophorectomy: removal of one or both ovaries and fallopian tubes
  • Dilatation and curettage (D&C): removal of tissue from the uterus
  • Endometrial ablation: removal of uterine lining to control abnormal bleeding
