Surgery

When lifestyle changes, medicine or other treatments do not ease your symptoms, your doctor may suggest surgery. Surgery can include:

  • Open surgery
    • performed through one large incision
  • Laparoscopic or robotic-assisted da Vinci® Surgery
    • minimally invasive surgery performed through a few small incisions (or small belly button incision*)

* Single-Site technology is only available for benign (non-cancerous) conditions.

da Vinci® Surgical System

The da Vinci Surgical System is designed to facilitate complex surgery using a minimally invasive approach controlled by the surgeon from a console. The da Vinci System is powered by robotic technology and allows the surgeon’s hand movements to be translated into smaller, more precise movements. Dr. Landry routinely performs hysterectomies, myomectomies and endometriosis resection surgeries using this technology, resulting in fewer scars and shorter recovery time.

The FDA approved the Da Vinci Surgical System in 2000. Since then, the technique has rapidly been adopted by hospitals in the United States and Europe for use in the treatment of a wide range of conditions.

Is a gynecologic condition affecting your health and quality of life? Many conditions can impact your well-being and daily life, such as:

  • Abnormal or very heavy bleeding
  • Fibroids
  • Cancer
  • Pelvic prolapse; falling/slipping of a pelvic organ(s)

If you have a benign (non-cancerous) condition that affects your health and quality of life, your doctor may suggest surgery. Surgery to remove the uterus is called a hysterectomy. It can be done with open surgery through one large incision (cut). It can also be done with minimally invasive surgery through a few small incisions using traditional laparoscopy or da Vinci Surgery.

The da Vinci System is a robotic-assisted surgical device that your surgeon is 100% in control of at all times. The da Vinci System gives surgeons:

  • 3D HD view inside your body
  • Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
  • Enhanced vision, precision and control

If your doctor suggests a hysterectomy, the most common ways to remove your uterus are: open surgery and minimally invasive surgery (traditional laparoscopy or robotically-assisted da Vinci Surgery).

When using da Vinci Single-Site* Surgery for benign (not cancer), your surgeon operates through a small cut in your belly button*. Patients see almost scarless results, like single incision traditional laparoscopy.

* Single-Site technology is only available for benign (non-cancerous) conditions.

Finding out you have cancer may be one of the hardest things you’ve faced. That’s why it’s important to learn about all of your options before choosing the best path forward.

If your doctor suggests a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) for cancer, there may be two options: open surgery through one large incision (cut) or minimally invasive surgery through a few small incisions using traditional laparoscopy or da Vinci Surgery.

The da Vinci System is a robotic-assisted device that your surgeon is 100% in control of at all times. The da Vinci System gives surgeons:

  • A 3D HD view inside your body
  • Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
  • Enhanced vision, precision and control

Endometriosis happens when tissue that lines the inside of your uterus (endometrium) grows into areas outside the uterus. It can cause mild to severe pain, among other symptoms.

If your doctor suggests surgery, there are two main options: open surgery through one large incision (cut) and minimally invasive surgery through a few small incisions. Minimally invasive surgery can be done using traditional laparoscopy or da Vinci Surgery (da Vinci Endometriosis Resection or da Vinci Hysterectomy).

The da Vinci System is a robotic-assisted surgical device that your surgeon is 100% in control of at all times. The da Vinci System gives surgeons:

  • 3D HD view inside your body
  • Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
  • Enhanced vision, precision and control

If you plan to have surgery to remove fibroids, the operation is called a myomectomy. Your doctor will take out the fibroid(s) and keep your uterus in place.

A myomectomy can be done using open surgery through one large incision (cut). It can also be done using minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy), which also includes da Vinci® Surgery.

da Vinci technology enables surgeons to operate through a few small incisions, like traditional laparoscopy, instead of a large incision. The da Vinci System is a robotically-assisted surgical device that your surgeon is 100% in control of at all times. The da Vinci System gives surgeons:

  • A 3D HD view inside your body
  • Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
  • Enhanced vision, precision and control

Pelvic prolapse occurs when a pelvic organ, such as your vagina or uterus slips out of its normal position. Surgery to correct this condition is called sacrocolpopexy. During surgery, doctors use surgical mesh to keep your pelvic organ(s) in the correct spot and ease your symptoms.

Pelvic prolapse surgery can be done with open surgery through one large incision (cut). It can also be done with minimally invasive surgery using traditional laparoscopy or da Vinci Surgery.

The da Vinci System is a robotic-assisted surgical device that your surgeon is 100% in control of at all times. The da Vinci System gives surgeons:

  • A 3D HD view inside your body
  • Special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
  • Enhanced vision, precision and control
