Robotic-assisted myomectomy is a new type of minimally invasive surgery that combines the best of open and laparoscopic surgeries.

With robotic-assisted surgery, surgeons can remove uterine fibroids through a small incision. Equally important, robotic-assisted surgery allows for the comprehensive and extremely precise reconstruction of the uterine wall regardless of the size or location of the fibroids.

Inova's state-of-the-art da VinciĀ® surgical system provides your doctor with enhanced vision, dexterity, control and precision during both the fibroid removal and the reconstruction process. This thorough reconstruction can help to prevent a possible uterine rupture during a future pregnancy.

Benefits of robotic-assisted surgery over open surgery include:

  • Opportunity for future pregnancy
  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • A faster hospital stay
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
