What is da Vinci® Surgery?

The da Vinci® Surgical System is a highly advanced, highly specific medical technology that is changing the way surgeries are performed. Dr. Shakiba of Women’s Pelvic Surgery of North Jersey utilizes this method in many procedures such as robotic hysterectomies, robotic myectomies, and robotic ovarian cystectomies. As a result, he has been able to provide his patients with the highest level of innovation, surgical care, and results thanks to this innovative surgical method. As a minimally invasive option for those in need of pelvic surgery, the da Vinci® Surgical System has brought new innovation to a variety of surgical procedures, including the hysterectomy.

Surgeries done using the da Vinci® Surgical System are known to be exceptionally safe, offering excellent results. In regards to urogynecological surgeries, particularly robotic hysterectomies done using the da Vinci® method, it has been found that the method allows for faster healing times, shorter hospital stays, and lesser risk of dangerous complications such as bleeding or infection. Though the operation may take slightly longer with the da Vinci® Surgical System, there is a lesser likelihood of blood loss or infection. Patients who have robotic hysterectomies done, as opposed to traditional hysterectomies, are known to return to their regular activities much faster.

Advantages of Robot-Assisted Surgeries

Hysterectomies are generally considered to be complex surgeries, however having the benefit of robotic assistance creates a very effective, much less invasive procedure. During the procedure, very small incisions just 1-2cm are created, enabling access for the da Vinci® Surgical System to operate with control and precision. This is what enables such a great recovery for patients who have surgery; it is known to reduce the healing time, lessen pain during healing, and reduce the risks involved.

What Does the da Vinci® Surgical System Offer?

This revolutionary surgical innovation has given surgeons a greater ability to perform intricate, detailed surgeries with a higher level of precision. During the process of a robotic-assisted surgery, several small incisions are made, while the surgeon is assisted by a magnified view in 3D HD of the patient’s body, allowing for an extremely detailed perspective while operating. The surgeon is further assisted by an ergonomically-designed console that allows for greater comfort while performing surgery, which aids in overall precision. This system allows the surgeon to maintain absolute control during the procedure, which results in a more precise surgery.

The instruments used during da Vinci® robotic hysterectomies are equally innovative. These wristed instruments have been designed specifically for use during these intricate surgeries, accommodating the small incisions by bending and rotating with far more flexibility and precision than the human hand can exact. One of these tools is the laparoscope, which is a slim tube holding both a camera and a light at its end. In use, this tool transfers images to the video monitor being used, giving the surgeon a clear view of the area during surgery.

The da Vinci® Surgical System is among the leading technologies available for hysterectomies and pelvic surgeries. If you suffer from a condition of which a robotic-assisted hysterectomy may be the solution, consider working with Dr. Shakiba of Women’s Pelvic Surgery of North Jersey. As a board-certified surgeon who specializes in urogynecological surgeries, you will be under the most advanced care, by a surgeon using the most cutting edge technology to ensure your procedure is performed properly.
