Treatment for Uterine Fibroids | Robotic Hysterectomy | Da Vinci Robotic Surgery | Plano Texas

  1. 1. Originally published on on March 29, 2012Plano, Texas Gynecologist Group Pioneers in Performing the da Vinci Robotic Surgery The Women’s Specialists of Plano offer the robotic hysterectomy and robotic myomectomy as treatment for uterine fibroids and many other gynecological conditionsEvery woman will experience a gynecological problem at one time or another in her life. Two of themost common gynecologic symptoms that women experience include pelvic pain and excessive orirregular menstrual bleeding. While it is common for women to have pelvic pain and menstrualbleeding during their normal menstrual cycle, it is not common to have pain and bleeding so severethat it disrupts normal activities of life.According to the Women’s Specialists of Plano, a group of gynecologists in North Dallas, while it iscommon for women to have bleeding and pain associated with the normal period, more acutesymptoms such as ongoing pelvic pressure, severe cramps, abdominal tenderness, pain duringurination or intercourse, and heavy, ongoing bleeding, usually signals an underlying problemThe symptoms listed above can occur alone, or in combination with each other. Most often, thesesymptoms may indicate:• Uterine Fibroids• Uterine Cysts• Uterine Prolapse• Endometriosis• Cervical Cancer• MenorrhagiaWhen a woman has been diagnosed with a gynecological condition, medication and conservativetreatment (for uterine fibroids as an example) are usually recommended first. When medication andnon-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery is often the next step and hasproven to be effective in eliminating a range of gynecologic conditions.Traditionally, open surgery using a large incision has been the standard approach to manygynecological procedures. Open gynecological surgery often leads to a longer recovery process and itis common for women to have increased pain and larger scars. Today, many surgeons are turning toa minimally invasive gynecology surgery by choosing the da Vinci Surgical System. Robotic surgeryhas been effective in the treatment for uterine fibroids, uterine cysts, and other conditions. Manywomen are choosing this new approach when faced with a myomectomy (the removal of uterinefibroids) and hysterectomy (the full or partial removal of the uterus).For complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures such as the myomectomy, robot-assisted surgery using the da Vinci robotic surgery system has proven to be effective. The technologyuses very tiny incisions allowing surgeons to use miniature instruments and with a 3D camera andmicroscope, operate with precise control and movement. The approach leaves minimal scarring andreduces the loss of blood, pain, and overall trauma that historically accompanies a hysterectomy.Robotic surgery is growing in popularity and continues to result in excellent clinical outcomes.Treatment for uterine fibroids and other gynecological conditions is made easier using the roboticsurgery system. If you are considering having a hysterectomy, discuss all of the options with yourdoctor. A robotic hysterectomy might be a viable choice to treat your condition.
  2. 2. Not all gynecological practices have adopted the da Vinci robotic surgery and robotic hysterectomyapproach. Despite the revolutionary advancement, it is a big investment with a large learning curve.The Women’s Specialists of Plano are pioneers using the system. According to the physicians thatmake up this practice, “It will only be a matter of time until the robotic way is the only way. We haveseen the difference it has made in hundreds of patients that walk through the doors of our Plano,Texas practice. It is revolutionary to say the least.”
