Experienced Gynecologist in Ridgewood, NJ
Dr. Shakiba at Women’s Pelvic Surgery of North Jersey, L.L.C. is an experienced OBGYN in Ridgewood, NJ providing a range of services, specializing in robotic hysterectomy. A hysterectomy can alleviate symptoms where other treatment methods fail. In fact, hysterectomy is one of the more common surgical procedures performed on women, second only to cesarean section. Hysterectomy can treat conditions ranging from benign tumors, cancerous tumors, uterine prolapse, endometriosis (or any other kind of abnormal uterine bleeding).
A robotic hysterectomy is the preferred surgical method for many women, due to the fact that your doctor can perform smaller incisions when performing the surgery. Because the procedure is not as invasive as other methods, women who elect to undergo a robotic hysterectomy in Ridgewood, NJ experience shorter hospital stays, easier recoveries, and a lower risk of complications, like bleeding or infection. Robotic surgery is performed using general anesthesia, meaning that you will be asleep during the procedure. Dr. Shakiba is skilled in using the da Vinci® System which affords the doctor the ability to perform a wider range of finer movements than those provided by ordinary laparoscopic surgery. Using a 3D, high-definition instrument, Dr. Shakiba can perform the hysterectomy with far more precision than traditional methods. The daVinci® method overcomes some of the limitations of traditional surgery or laparoscopic surgery. Furthermore, research has shown that this method results in less pain, fewer complications, less blood loss, reduced hospital stays, lower risk of infection, and faster recovery for most women. When facing major surgery, you need a doctor who uses cutting-edge technology and who has the experience to ensure both a successful outcome and a faster recovery time.
