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 Vinci® 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
