With a da Vinci Robotic System now in place at Cone Health’s Alamance Regional Medical Center in Burlington, gynecologists now have another option for performing gynecological procedures such as hysterectomies, myomectomies and sacrocolpopexies with minimally invasive techniques.
Robotic surgery is now allowing gynecologists to perform more difficult procedures, which may have traditionally been administered through an open incision, laparoscopically.
Robotic surgery extends the surgeon’s capacity and experience improving vision and perspective, providing the surgeon with four arms, and performing with improved precision.
The software and technology for the da Vinci Robotic Systems is constantly advancing, continually improving the benefits for patients and surgeons in robotically assisted procedures.
Software is currently being developed to perform the robotic surgeries with a single, small incision to further reduce scarring and pain.
The physicians performing robotic surgeries within the Cone Health network are also dedicated to receiving continued education and training to utilize the evolving software and improve patient experience.
