Robotic Surgery in Gynecologic Cancers

In Liv Hospital Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinic gynecologic cancers are successfully treated with robotic surgery. Robotic and laparoscopic surgical methods are used in the treatment of gynecological diseases. The most effective and widespread use of robotic surgery is in the field of gynecological oncology. Robotic surgery is successfully performed in cervical and intrauterine cancer operations.


Gynecological surgeries through only one hole without scar

Liv Hospital Gynecology and Obstetrics Clinic, the surgeons performs robotic surgery without any scar by entering the abdomen through one hole or one port. The port can be placed into umbilicus. Excellent cosmetic results can be obtained as there is no need more incision on the abdomen. In this surgery an instrument called port is placed into umbilicus. A camera and two separate instruments pass through this port. All arms are connected to robot and controlled by the surgeon. A successful surgery is performed. 

It is important to be performed by old hands

Single-port robotic surgery can be performed anywhere on the abdomen. However, the best cosmetic results are obtained if it is made through the navel. Single-port robotic surgery can be used to remove benign fibroids, ovarian and tube problems, and some early stage gynecologic cancers. One-hole robotic gynecological surgeries that require a certain level of experience are surgical operations of the future and are truly "minimally invasive" procedures. In this operation, one hole is used instead of 3 or 4 holes. With the development of this technique, many surgeries can be performed in this way in the near future.

What are the advantages of robotic surgery?

Surgeons using the robotic system have the advantage of better visualization of the surgical field with higher accuracy, flexibility and control during operation compared to conventional methods. Instruments used in the robotic system allow the surgeon the wrist's flexibility of movement of the inside the chest. Surgeons using the robotic surgery system can perform precise and complex procedures that may be difficult or impossible with other methods.  The benefits of minimally invasive surgery provided by robotic surgery are:
  • Less complication 
  • Less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Faster recovery
  • Smaller and less noticeable incisions.
