Dr Bral Using Robotics to Treat Patient

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 surgery and minimally-invasive procedures, also known as laparoscopic procedures, help surgeons to achieve better outcomes and allow paitients a faster patient recovery time and shorter hospital stay. 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 a robotic surgical 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:

  • Fibroids
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Pelvic prolapse
  • Urinary incontinence Treatments and Procedures
