Robotic Gynecology Surgery

When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. These include, but are not limited to:

Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has for many years been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures. Yet with open surgery can come significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process and threat to surrounding organs and nerves. For women facing gynecologic surgery, the period of pain, discomfort and extended time away from normal daily activities that usually follows traditional surgery can understandably cause significant anxiety.

Fortunately, less invasive options are available. Some gynecologic procedures enable surgeons to access the target anatomy using a vaginal approach, which may not require an external incision. But for complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option and these procedures are offered at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Boston, Mass., and Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Mass. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci Surgical System can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.

Steward Heath Care offers convenient robotic surgery services, in your community. We offer treatment gynecologic conditions with the following robotic surgery procedures: 

  • Robotic Endometriosis Resection - treatment of endometriosis, a  female health disorder that occurs when cells from the lining of the womb (uterus) grow in other areas of the body. This can lead to pain, irregular bleeding, and problems getting conceiving.

  • Robotic Gynecologic Oncology - treatment of gynecologic cancer, cancer that can affect a woman's reproductive system, which consists of the uterus, vagina, ovaries and fallopian tubes.

  • Robotic Hysterectomy - treating benign and complex gynecological conditions with the removal of the uterus.

  • Robotic Myomectomy (Fibroidectomy) - treatment of uterine fibroids by robotically preserving the uterus and only removing the fibroids.
