Robotic Female Surgery or Advanced Robotics

Robotic female surgery uses robotic surgical systems to perform minimally invasive gynecological surgeries.

With robotic technology, the surgeon can operate through a very small incision, manipulating robotic arms to perform complex tasks with precision and dexterity that can't be achieved through traditional minimally invasive surgery or open surgery. A 3-D imaging console improves visualization, giving the surgeon the view they would normally see during an open surgical procedure.

Robotic female surgery can be used to treat fibroids, abnormal menstrual bleeding, endometriosis, ovarian tumors, pelvic prolapse, and female cancers. Using the robotic system, gynecologists can perform hysterectomies, myomectomies, and lymph node biopsies.
