Robotic & Minimally Invasive Surgery Q & A

What is robotic and minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery uses small incisions and tiny instruments to perform surgical procedures. This involves laparoscopic surgery in which a thin tube affixed with a light and camera is inserted through a small incision to broadcast the area of treatment onto a monitor in the operating room.

Robotic surgery is a form of minimally invasive surgery in which Dr. Magsino uses master controls to manipulate instruments that perform the surgery. The instruments translate your surgeon’s movements into precise, detailed actions that are superior to what the human hand can do alone. Dr. Magsino is in control of the robotic platform at all times.

What are the benefits of robotic and minimally invasive surgery?

A minimally invasive approach to surgery affords you many benefits as compared to traditional open surgery including:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less scarring
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Faster recovery time

Robotically assisted minimally invasive surgery is of value because it enables Dr. Magsino to apply a level of precision simply not available with the human hand, despite her great skill and experience. The robotic arms can also twist and bend to degrees not possible during conventional surgery.

The robotic platform also provides a 3D image of the surgical site so she can complete your procedure with enhanced vision.

What type of gynecologic surgeries can be performed with robotic and minimally invasive surgery?

Robotic and minimally invasive surgery is useful for routine and complex procedures. Dr. Magsino may use it for:

  • Hysterectomy, or removal of the uterus and ovaries
  • Myomectomy, or removal of fibroids
  • Removal of abnormal endometrial tissue in a case of endometriosis
  • Sacrocolpopexy, or correction of pelvic organ prolapse 
  • Removal of cancerous tumors  

Not every practice offers the advantages of robotic and minimally invasive surgery as an option to treat your gynecological problems. Dr. Magsino has the skill and expertise to determine when these procedures are right for you.
