The robotic surgical system provides breakthrough minimally invasive surgical capabilities. A wide variety of benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous) conditions that affect a woman's reproductive system, consisting of the uterus, vagina, ovaries and fallopian tubes, may be treated with robotic assisted gynecologic surgery.
Minimally invasive surgery is routinely used to treat gynecologic conditions, including fibroid tumors, endometriosis and certain cancers.
As an official Epicenter training site, Saddleback Medical Center hosts gynecologic surgeons from across the nation as they study specialized surgical techniques by observing robotic surgeries in action in our da Vinci operating suite. Saddleback Medical Center and the Epicenter team were chosen as an Epicenter because of their demonstrated dedication, experience, excellence in patient outcomes, and passion for teaching.
Through robotic-assisted visualization, dexterity, precision and control, a surgeon can perform a wide array of procedures through small 1–2 cm incisions. During an operation, the surgeon sits at a console in the surgical suite and directs the robotic arms to perform the surgery. The robot seamlessly and directly translates the surgeon's natural hand, wrist and finger movements from controls at the console to the surgical instruments inside the patient.
