da Vinci Surgery – Robotics

The da Vinci Robotic Surgical System is available thru Women’s Health Center of

Clarksville in cooperation with Gateway Medical Center. The purpose of robotic

technology is to convert open cases to a minimally invasive one. However, if procedures

can be performed by conventional laparoscopy without the robot then it may not be

cost-effective to use this is added technology.


The “robot” allows the physician the ability to offer patients a surgical approach

utilizing high-definition 3D vision with magnification of the surgical field. This, in

turn, may mean that major surgical procedures can be performed thru small

laparoscopy incisions on the abdomen.


There are numerous benefits of laparoscopic procedures over traditional open

surgery. Some of these include less blood loss, less pain, shorter hospital stay

and quicker return to normal activities. The da Vinci Robotic Surgical System can

be used for a number these gynecological surgical procedures to include

hysterectomy, myomectomy, adnexectomy, prolapsed vaginal vault repair and .

tubal reanastamosis. Many surgeons believe they can achieve the same end

results with conventional laparoscopy. The patient should discuss their options

with their doctor.
