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 CMC-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.
