Robotic Surgery at Norman Regional

Your doctor can treat a range of gynecologic conditions – from chronic pelvis pain to abnormal bleeding – minimally invasively with the da Vinci Surgical System. Through a da Vinci procedure, which requires only a few small incisions, you can get back to life faster – without the usual recovery following major surgery

The da Vinci Surgical System is an innovative alternative to open surgery and a highly useful tool for laparoscopic surgery.

Benefits include:

  • smaller incisions
  • less pain
  • shorter hospital stay
  • faster recovery time

Only you and your doctor can decide whether da Vinci Surgery may be right for you. Some symptoms and conditions that may require a hysterectomy include:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Endometriosis
  • Cancer
  • Falling uterus or bladder

How It Works

The da Vinci Surgical System is a sophisticated robotic designed to enable complex surgery using a minimally invasive approach. The system consists of a surgeon’s console, a patient-side cart with four robotic arms, a 3D HD vision system and EndoWrist® instruments.

The da Vinci System is designed to seamlessly translate the surgeon's hand movements into more precise movements of the EndoWrist instruments. The da Vinci System’s high-resolution 3D viewer is designed to provide surgeons with an immersive experience. The targeted anatomy appears at high magnification, in brilliant color and with natural depth of field.

To perform a procedure, the surgeon uses the console’s master controls to maneuver the patient-side cart’s four robotic arms, which securely hold the EndoWrist instruments and high-resolution endoscopic camera.
