Uterine Fibroid Removal
Though uterine fibroids are almost always benign, these small lumps of muscle can cause painful symptoms and excessive uterine bleeding, and may lead to complications in pregnancy. Using the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons can remove uterine fibroids with minimal damage to surrounding tissues.
Cervical and Uterine Cancers
Robotic and laparoscopic surgery techniques have allowed for more effective treatment of cervical and uterine cancers. Call 1-877-726-WELL for referral to a surgeon who can provide you with more information.
Endometriosis & Adhesions
Endometriosis is a growth of uterine lining outside the uterus. This condition can cause scarring (adhesions) in the pelvic cavity, as well as abnormal bleeding and pain. Treatment of this condition and removal of adhesions is possible with the da Vinci Surgical System.
Menorrhagia (excessive bleeding)
Menorrhagia, excessive menstrual bleeding, may be caused by disorders of the endometrial lining of the uterus. Though menorrhagia may be managed non-surgically, some women will need an operation for long-term results. Call 1-877-726-WELL for referral to a surgeon who can provide you with more information.
An ovarian cyst is a small fluid-filled sac. Most cysts are harmless, non-cancerous, and go away over time. Some cysts will require surgical removal.
