Resection of Endometriosis
Robotic radical resection of endometriosis is performed in order to alleviate the pain associated with endometriosis and decrease the chances that our patients will require additional surgery at a later date. Endometriosis is able to be more completely removed using the robotic 3D capability of vision. Benefits of this procedure include:
- Enhanced tissue removal
- Less scarring than with open surgery
- Less post-operative pain
- Faster recovery
Da Vinci® provides the surgeon with a superior surgical tool for resecting endometriosis compared to traditional open or minimally invasive approaches. Da Vinci® endometriosis resection also allows your surgeon better visualization of anatomy, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures. As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient- and procedure-specific. While robotic resection of endometriosis performed using the da Vinci® Surgical System is considered safe and effective, these procedures may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
