Certain health conditions can affect fertility; however, robotic-assisted surgery has created more options for women who have infertility and difficulty getting pregnant.
More Fertility Options With Robotic-Assisted Surgery
Robotic-assisted surgery can be effective in treating:
Precise Surgery Means Fewer Fertility Complications
Robotic-assisted surgery is especially promising for women who would like to have children in the future. Robotic-assisted surgery gives the surgeon a better view of the anatomy and allows the surgeon to make small precise movements to remove the tissue, preserving the delicate structures of the pelvis and decreasing the chance of future complications.
Minimally Invasive Robotic-Assisted Surgery
Robotic-assisted surgery is minimally invasive. This means that, instead of a traditional “open” surgery, there are several small incisions made in the abdomen. This is beneficial because the small incisions allow for a much shorter recovery time.
With robotic-assisted surgery, you can benefit from the following:
The surgeon rests his or her hands on the robot's controls and is in control of the robot's movements at all times. The console controls the small instruments that have been inserted through the incisions in the abdomen. Your surgeon and surgical assistant are at your side at all times.
