Widely accepted as the best surgical technique for treating endometriosis, the da Vinci Xi facilitates precise excision of ovarian endometriotic cyst and complete removal of all endometriotic implants deep in the pelvis. The multidisciplinary surgical team at North Shore Private has extensively utilised the da Vinci Xi robot to treat severe endometriosis involving bowel, bladder, ureter.
Pelvic floor repair (Sacrocolpopexy)
Sacrocolpopexy, also known as sacral colpopexy, is a type of reconstructive pelvic surgery that corrects pelvic organ prolapse involving the top of the vagina (vaginal vault) or the cervix (lower part of the uterus) that have dropped out of the normal position and protrude downward into the vagina. First described in the late 1950’s, sacrocolpopexy is regarded as the most effective and durable surgical procedure for the management of vaginal vault prolapse.
Hysterectomy is a major surgical procedure for removal of the uterus. Often done through open abdominal surgery to relieve pain and heavy menstrual bleeding caused by conditions such as endometriosis, adenomyosis, or to relieve pressure caused by uterine fibroids, the procedure can also be performed through laparoscopic or robotic surgery, offering a safe, minimally invasive alternative technique to open surgery.
Myomectomy is a surgical procedure to remove uterine fibroids — also called leiomyomas. These common noncancerous growths appear in the uterus. Uterine fibroids usually develop during childbearing years, but they can occur at any age.
Traditionally done through open surgery, da Vinci Xi robot allows skilful surgeons to effectively remove large fibroids and repair the uterus with its hand-like robotic tools.
An ovarian cystectomy is surgery to remove a benign cyst from a woman’s ovary. In the reproductive age group, endometrioma and dermoid are the two most common types of benign ovarian cysts. With the benefits of magnified 3-D vision and complete control, the da Vinci Xi robot provides the surgeons with an advanced surgical platform to precisely differentiate and remove the cyst wall from adjacent normal ovarian tissue, thus optimally preserving ovarian reserve.
Repair of C-section defect (CSD)
A C-section defect is an indentation or pouch on the anterior wall of the uterus at the site of a previous C-section scar. Some women who have a CSD may experience abnormal bleeding, pain or secondary infertility. Similar to the benefits to ovarian cystectomy, the da Vinci Xi robot provides the surgeons with an advanced surgical platform and hand-like instruments to identify, excise and repair the CSD as a day procedure.
