Robotic Surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System

The da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic surgical platform utilized in performing laparoscopic surgery and is considered revolutionary as it offers patients a minimally invasive treatment option for traditionally complex conditions. Gynecologic procedures using the da Vinci robot are increasingly common, as this type of surgery allows for major procedures to be performed through the smallest of incisions.

During da Vinci robotic surgery, the surgeon uses a console to control the procedure. He/she controls up to four robotic arms that can hold a range of tools. The joint-wristed design of the arms allow for flexibility and a level of precision much greater than the normal range of a human hand. There is also the advantage of tremor reduction making it possible to do the most delicate of surgical treatments.

With the da Vinci Surgical System surgeons can operate with greater dexterity, enhanced precision and superior visibility. At the same time, the patient benefits from a less invasive procedure, with less potential for blood loss. This means a reduction in pain and a faster recovery time.

As leaders in the field of reproductive medicine, the expert team at RMA of New York is delighted to offer robotic surgery to our patients through the guided expertise of Dr. Joseph B. Davis. Dr. Davis treats patients with fibroids, endometriosis and tubal damage utilizing the da Vinci System at Mount Sinai Hospital, and the use of this system will depend on the circumstances of the individual patient which will be discussed in depth with the physician as part of the treatment process.

The da Vinci system can be used for a number of procedures as part of the IVF process. These include:

  • Myomectomy, where fibroids are removed from the uterus
  • Endometrosis, which is when tissue that behaves like the lining of the womb is found outside the womb
  • Removal of ovarian cysts and lysis of adhesions (scar tissue that can reduce fertility)
  • Tubal reanastomosis, whereby separated segments of the fallopian tube are joined together

By using the da Vinci Surgical System as part of our comprehensive care, RMA of New York is proud to be able to support our patients to achieve the family building outcomes they desire.
