We are pleased to offer the da Vinci robotic surgical system as an advanced option to help treat gynecological problems and malignancies. With this minimally invasive surgical and robotic technology, surgeons operate through a few small incisions and view the patient through a magnified 3D high-definition vision system. The important thing to note is that the surgeon is in control of the da Vinci system, which allows for greater control and preciseness. Da Vinci is considered the number one minimally invasive choice for hysterectomy procedures in the US.
Over 80,000 times per year, a woman in the United States is diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer, and about 26,000 women will die this year as a result. Gynecologic Oncology is a medical specialty that deals with the study and treatment of malignancies arising in the female reproductive tract. The ovaries, endometrium, cervix, vulva and vagina are where the most common and serious gynecological malignancies occur. Gynecologic oncologists are cancer specialists trained in the biology and pathology of gynecologic cancers and ensure continuous patient care as opposed to the disjointed care of several different specialists.
Urinary incontinence is uncontrollable leakage of urine from the bladder. Women experience urinary incontinence twice as often as men due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and the physical structure of the female urinary tract. The causes of urinary incontinence are treatable and frequently curable, but women need to see a physician for help. Treatments include exercise, electrical stimulation, biofeedback, timed maintenance, medication, pessaries, implants, catheterizations, and advanced surgical procedures. Urologists and most gynecologists are trained in the latest incontinence treatments.
