Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery Provides Advanced Gynecological Care
Maimonides Medical Center is a leader in the community for its groundbreaking use of robotics and minimally invasive procedures to treat gynecological health issues. Maimonides was the first Brooklyn hospital to offer robotic surgery for gynecological disorders, providing a more effective, less invasive solution for patients. Robotic and Minimally Invasive Procedures, also known as Laparoscopic Procedures, have developed to help surgeons achieve better outcomes. This translates into a faster patient recovery times and shorter hospital stays. It is our goal for you to get better sooner, so you can return to the active lifestyle you enjoy.
Our expert team includes physicians, nurses and technicians, dedicated to offering you the most skilled, individualized, and compassionate care possible.
What is Robotic Surgery?
During the procedure, the robotic system converts the surgeon's hand movements at a console into real-time procedures inside a patient. Using the state-of-the-art robotic surgical system, our surgeons have a higher level of precision and enhanced dexterity. This technique has been used successfully in tens of thousands of minimally invasive procedures worldwide. Because robotics use smaller instruments, the surgery causes less trauma to the skin and surrounding tissues, less bleeding and infection, less pain, less scaring inside the abdomen and therefore results in a better fertility outcome, and a much faster recovery period.
In Gynecology, Robotic Surgery is Used to Treat Conditions such as:
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Pelvic prolapse
- Urinary incontinence Treatments and Procedures
Innovative procedures offered to reduce patient discomfort and length of hospital stay include:
- Laparoscopic hysterectomy
- Robotic myomectomy
- Pelvic reconstruction
- Uterine artery embolization
