In-Hospital Surgeries Q&A

What is robotic-assisted gynecologic surgery?

Dr. Danastor is committed to leading advances in her field. That’s why she performs minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries with the da Vinci robotic system. During robotic-assisted surgery, Dr. Gadh is in complete control of the surgical system from a separate terminal in the operating room.

Surgeries with the da Vinci system are less invasive than open surgeries because they only require a few small incisions rather than one large one. The da Vinci robotic arms offer Dr. Gradh a greater level of precision and control than the human hand and wrist can. This leads to fewer complications, less pain, and shorter recovery time for you. 

What is laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy is another minimally invasive technique that Dr. Danastor uses to perform gynecologic surgery. This method uses a thin, flexible instrument (laparoscope) that has a camera attached. 

Dr. Danastor inserts the laparoscope through a small incision, about the size of a buttonhole. The camera projects magnified images of your uterus and pelvic organs onto a computer screen. 

Laparoscopy can help Dr. Danastor diagnose certain conditions, such as the cause of chronic pelvic pain or infertility. She also uses laparoscopy to treat problems and remove abnormal growths, such as ovarian cysts.

What is a hysterectomy?

Hysterectomy involves removing all or part of your uterus. There are many ways Dr. Danastor can perform a hysterectomy, including:

  • Open surgery through a large incision in your abdomen
  • Minimally invasive laparoscopic hysterectomy 
  • Robotic-assisted hysterectomy with the da Vinci surgical system

Dr. Danastor always uses the least invasive procedure possible, but not everyone is a candidate for a laparoscopic or robotic hysterectomy. 

Why would I need in-hospital gynecologic surgery?

Surgery may be necessary if you have a gynecologic condition that doesn’t resolve with conservative treatments, such as medication and lifestyle changes. Dr. Danastor uses minimally invasive surgery to diagnose and treat a wide range of problems, including:

  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Pelvic floor disorders
  • Certain types of cancer

Even though procedures like laparoscopy and robotic surgery are minimally invasive, they still require general anesthesia and must take place in a hospital.
