Robotic Surgery

When a problem occurs that requires surgical repair, the physicians at Greater Carolinas Women's Center are pleased to offer minimally invasive robotic surgery options. Performed at Carolinas HealthCare System University, robotic surgery provides the best results with the least amount of discomfort and also the fewest risks. For patients, robotic minimally invasive procedures can: 

  • Minimize post-operative pain
  • Decrease recovery time
  • Decrease blood loss
  • Decrease risk of infection
  • Result in smaller surgical incisions

Robotic surgery uses a robotic tool and video system to assist surgeons in the operating room. The surgical instrumentation improves precision and manipulation in small surgical spaces.

In cases such as a myomectomy, the removal of fibroid tumors, or tubal reanastomosis, the reversal of a tubal ligation, the traditional open surgery approach involves a three-day hospital stay for pain management and six to eight weeks for recovery. With robotic surgery, the patient is discharged the same day and can return to most activities within a week.

To learn more about robotic surgery, please contact Greater Carolinas Women's Center to speak with a representative.
