Robotic Gynecologic Surgery at Sharp HealthCare

When medication and noninvasive procedures are unable to relieve patients’ symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment. Robotic surgery uses state-of-the-art technology that allows the surgeon's hand movements to translate into extremely precise movements within the operative site. The magnified, three-dimensional view and small, robotic instruments enhance the surgeon's ability to perform complex procedures through small incisions. Among the many benefits of robotic surgery compared to traditional gynecologic surgery are a faster recovery and return to normal activities, less pain, less scarring and a shorter hospital stay.
