da Vinci Surgery

v-patient2.jpgUsing the da Vinci® robot, Dr. Pham can perform hysterectomies and myomectomies with complete precision and control. The system offers all the advantages of minimally-invasive surgery, which include less pain and faster recovery, along with more accuracy and efficiency.

How does the da Vinci system work?

The da Vinci system requires only a few dime-sized incisions. Miniature wristed instruments and a high-definition 3-D camera are inserted through the incisions. The system features a console where the doctor can view a magnified 3-D image of the surgical area, and use a remote control unit to perform the surgery. The da Vinci system has interactive mechanical robotic arms that completely replicate the doctor’s movements in real time.

Using the da Vinci robot, our doctors can perform complex and delicate hysterectomies, and remove small or large fibroids, regardless of where they’re located. Once the fibroids are removed, the da Vinci system enables the doctor to precisely reconstruct the uterine wall, making future pregnancy possible.
