The recovery period after a gynecologic surgery can be difficult, depending on individual patient factors. Precision surgery aims to help surgeons perform surgery with more accuracy and clearer vision. The daVinci robot is a computerized system in which the surgeon performs surgeries by making small incisions. A high magnification camera allows the surgeon to see the surgical area clearly without difficulty. It is easy to control all instruments used in the surgery. Dr. Leslie Masiky, Dr. Aliya Poshni, and Dr. Adam Footer from Capital Women's Care have incorporated Robotic Surgery in their practice in Rockville, MD.

Many have the misconception that a robot conducts surgery in robotic surgeries. It is a system where a computer-controlled robot assists the surgeon during the surgery. The incisions made in robotic surgery are precise, compared to traditional open incision methods allowing minimum damage to healthy tissues. The advantage of this method is less pain and blood loss, a shorter hospital stay, and faster recovery. Patients who require complex surgeries can benefit from Robotic surgery in Rockville, MD.

Surgeons can use precision surgery in removing the uterus (hysterectomy). It can also help in removing fibroids from the uterus (myomectomy). Some patients have tissue growing outside of the uterus that can cause considerable pelvic pain during menstruation. It is known as endometriosis and it can utilize the daVinci robot system for surgery. This advanced system is not limited to gynecologic surgeries and, various other surgeries use it. Highly skilled surgeons undergo special training in robotic surgery before operating on patients.

The field of precision surgery is evolving and looks promising for patients as well as surgeons.

Discover the benefits of the da Vinci robotic system for performing gynecological surgeries.robotic surgery

While a lot of women will experience abdominal pain at some point during their lifetime, there are some women who deal with such persistent and painful abdominal discomfort that it greatly impacts their lives. Our Rockville, MD, OBGYNs Dr. Eric Ashkin, Dr. Aliya Poshni and Dr. Leslie Masiky are here to tell you how robotic surgery could improve your feminine health and quality of life.

When you find out you need surgery it’s easy to be worried about the invasiveness of the procedure, the obvious incision scar and the drawn-out recovery period. Fortunately, our Rockville, MD, gynecologists remove all of these concerns by offering da Vinci surgery, a minimally invasive procedure that makes significantly smaller incisions and offers an array of other benefits that traditional surgical techniques cannot.

When is the da Vinci robotic system used?

This revolutionary surgical device is often used for hysterectomies (to remove the uterus), to treat endometriosis (a condition that causes the tissue of the uterus to grow in other nearby regions), to remove fibroids or to treat pelvic prolapse. When you come in for a consultation, we will be able to determine whether your condition will require surgery or not and whether the da Vinci system is the best approach. Surgery is not typically the first course of action; however, we will recommend the da Vinci robotic surgery if nonsurgical treatment options haven’t properly managed your symptoms.

What are the benefits of the da Vinci robotic system?

This system is robotic-assisted, which means that our gynecologist will be in control of the device throughout your surgery. With this system, our gynecologists are able to offer a more accurate and precise surgery. Robotics allows our doctors to get into more difficult areas that may be more challenging manually. This device also offers other wonderful benefits that traditional surgery just can’t including:

  • Shorter recovery period
  • Fewer post-surgical side effects (e.g. less bleeding)
  • Less risk of complications
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Less visible incision scars

Dealing with unexplained pelvic pain? Are you interested in learning about the da Vinci robotic system? Then it’s time you turned to Capital Women’s Care in Rockville, MD, for the care you deserve to live a pain-free life.
