Da Vinci® Robotic Surgery

Our Joliet, Illinois OB/GYN practice is devoted to minimally invasive procedures for gynecology conditions, including Da Vinci® robotic surgery. When performed by a board-certified gynecologic surgeon like Dr. Brian Egan, state-of-the-art robotic surgery has a lower risk of complications than traditional surgery because of the advanced technology of the robotic surgical system and Dr. Egan’s experience.

What Are the Benefits of Da Vinci Robotic Surgery?

Using the Da Vinci Surgical System, your gynecologic surgeon gains a 3D view of your internal organs, along with uncompromised dexterity and control during a procedure, which is vital when dealing with the female reproductive system. Minimally invasive robotic surgery also offers patients an alternative with less down time, less pain, and less scaring.

What Happens during Da Vinci Robotic Surgery?

The Da Vinci method is ideal for particularly challenging or complex procedures. We typically use the Da Vinci robot to perform a minimally invasive hysterectomy, which removes the uterus through a single small incision in your belly button.

During the surgery, your doctor sits at the Da Vinci computer console, just a few feet away from you. From there, he has a magnified, high definition, 3D image of the surgery. The surgeon controls the robot from the computer with his hands, as if he were performing a virtual surgery. The computer translates the surgeon’s hand movements into extremely precise micro-movements of the Da Vinci surgical instruments and camera.
