Gynecologic Surgery with da Vinci
Remember the days when surgery for a gynecologic condition meant a large incision, days in the hospital and weeks of painful recovery? Thankfully, many women who choose Covenant HealthCare have an easier option.
Doctors can treat a range of gynecologic conditions -- from chronic pelvic pain to abnormal bleeding -- with a minimally invasive da Vinci® surgery. This state-of-the-art, robot-assisted surgery requires only a few small incisions, allowing fast recovery and better clinical outcomes.
Cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and menorrhagia/excessive bleeding are some of the most common gynecologic conditions in which da Vinci® surgery is used.
Seven out of 10 women nationwide now choose da Vinci® surgery rather than conventional laparoscopy or vaginal surgery.
At Covenant HealthCare, more than 800 gynecologic robotic surgeries have been performed since they debuted the da Vinci® system three years ago, which is more than any other robotic procedure.

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed since surgery is specific to each patient, condition and procedure. It is important to talk to your doctor about all treatment options, including the risks and benefits.
