Innovative new procedures being utilized at Mount Sinai to reduce patient discomfort and length of hospital stay include Laparoscopic Total Hysterectomy (LTH) and Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy (LSH). In addition, the da Vinci Surgical System is used to perform Robotic procedures for complex benign and malignant gynecologic conditions.
Though not all pelvic surgeries can be performed by robotics, we began using this technique many years before it was considered acceptable in most medical centers. Now, approximately 60% of our gynecologic surgeries are performed using a minimally invasive approach.
The Robotic system translates a surgeon's hand movements at a console into real-time procedures inside a patient. Through incisions that are one-to-two centimeters long, and enhanced three-dimensional visualization, surgeons can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
