da Vinci Myomectomy

If your doctor recommends surgery to treat uterine fibroids, you may be a candidate for a new, uterine-preserving, minimally invasive procedure – da Vinci Myomectomy. Using the assistance of the most advanced combination of surgical and robotics technology available – the da Vinci Surgical System – da Vinci Myomectomy enables surgeons to perform this delicate operation with unmatched precision and control – using only a few small incisions.

Another surgical alternative, laparoscopic myomectomy, is also minimally invasive. However, conventional laparoscopy has inherent technological limitations that limit its effectiveness for more complex surgical procedures.

In contrast, for many patients, da Vinci Myomectomy, a robot-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy, can provide the most effective, least invasive treatment for uterine fibroids. It is also a uterine-preserving alternative to open abdominal hysterectomy. Among the potential benefits of da Vinci Myomectomy as compared to traditional open abdominal surgery are:

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

da Vinci Myomectomy is performed with the da Vinci Surgical System, which allows your surgeon to perform a minimally invasive, yet remarkably precise, comprehensive reconstruction of the uterine wall, regardless of the size or location of your fibroids. The unique level of control and precision provided by da Vinci also can help your surgeon provide the most precise and thorough reconstruction possible, helping to prevent possible uterine rupture (tearing) during future pregnancies.

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient- and procedure-specific. While myomectomy performed using the da Vinci Surgical System is considered safe and effective, this procedure may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
