Advanced Pelvic Surgery
Advanced Pelvic Surgery and DaVinci Gynecologic Surgery includes daVinci Hysterectomy, Myomectomy (Fibroids resection), Endometriosis treatment, Ovarian cysts resection or adhesiolysis (removal of adhesions within pelvic area).
The technology is very beneficial for the following reasons: increased visibility and precision given the surgical image (for the surgeon) is 10x magnified, high definition and 3D image. Patients benefit from the daVinci technology since the post-surgical pain is much less than after procedures associated with more extensive incisions, lower blood loss, shorter hospital stay and smaller incisions. The daVinci platform is especially useful for very complex procedures where a distorted pelvic and abdominal anatomy is encountered in cases of severe endometriosis, and in patients with prior surgeries. These are usually complicated by extensive adhesions (scar tissue). Another benefit of daVinci system enables very precise excision of multiple uterine fibroids followed by a reliable suturing and restoring of uterine anatomy.
daVinci Gynecologic Surgery
The daVinci Surgical System utilized by Dr. Wolny for daVinci Gynecologic Procedures, including Hysterectomy, Myomectomy ( Uterine Fibroids Resection), Excision of Endometriosis, Resection of Adhesive Disease, Removal of Adnexal ( Ovarian and Tubal Cysts), Lysis of Adhesions ( Removal of scar tissue), Management of Pelvic Pain. The benefits of the daVinci technology are numerous given the option to achieve excellent precision and accuracy of the procedure. One of the most beneficial features of the technology include 3D visualization and 10x magnification of the surgical field. To access the most intricate areas in the pelvis, daVinci instruments are superb since they enable above physiological dexterity of human hand, controlling the instruments. In contrast to 2D laparoscopy, daVinci technology brings many valuable benefits to the patients. Because of minimal incisions, the postoperative recovery is much shorter than in open surgeries or even laparoscopic procedures. The main reason for the decreased pain is significantly less interaction of the instruments with human hand.
