Robot-Assisted Surgery for Gynecologic Cancer

UPMC Content 2

The Magee-Womens Gynecologic Cancer Program in Pittsburgh, Pa., offers the latest surgical advances for treating gynecologic cancers.

What is Robot-Assisted Surgery?

Robot-assisted surgery, using the da VinciĀ® Surgical System, is a type of minimally invasive surgery (MIS).

Our specially trained surgical experts use advanced equipment to translate their hand and finger movements to robotic arms, allowing for:

  • Precise, real-time movements
  • Greater dexterity and precision, compared to traditional open surgery

Types of Gynecologic Cancers We Treat

We use robot-assisted surgery for gynecologic cancers requiring the removal of the:

  • Uterus (supra-cervical hysterectomy)
  • Uterus and cervix (total hysterectomy)
  • Fallopian tubes and/or ovaries (as part of a hysterectomy or separately)
  • Lymph nodes

We also use this technology for tissue sampling.

Benefits of Robot-Assisted Surgery

Compared to traditional open surgical procedures, the benefits of robot-assisted surgery for treating gynecologic cancer typically include:

  • Less bleeding and scarring
  • Reduced pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker recovery
  • Earlier return to normal activity
  • Smaller scars
