Robotic Gynecology & Urogynecology Surgery

Robotic Gynecology and Urogynecology Surgery

The gynecologists and urogynecologists at Hackensack Meridian Health are pioneers in innovative robotic surgery for treating conditions of the reproductive organs and pelvic area, including cancer.

We’ve long been a leader in robotic surgery for women, starting with the introduction of robotic hysterectomy more than 20 years ago. Our team of gynecology and urogynecology robotic surgeons offers experience you won’t find anywhere else in the area. 

 

Robotic Surgery for Your Condition

Gynecology 

We understand that surgery can be scary. If your condition does not respond to medical treatment and requires surgery, our gynecologists perform minimally invasive robotic techniques with smaller incisions and a faster recovery compared to traditional surgery. 

Conditions We Treat

Robotic Procedures
  • Excision of Endometriosis: Remove growths and scar tissue without harming the healthy tissue of the uterus.
  • Myomectomy: Remove uterine fibroids, leaving the uterus intact.
  • Ovarian Cystectomy: Remove ovarian cysts while preserving the ovaries. 
  • Partial Hysterectomy: Remove the uterus, leaving the cervix intact.
  • Total Hysterectomy: Remove the uterus and the cervix.

Urogynecology

Pelvic floor disorders and bladder control issues become more common as women age. Our urogynecologists are board-certified doctors with special training to address pain in the lower abdomen or trouble with urinary, fecal or sexual function.

Conditions We Treat

Robotic Procedures

  • Prolapse Repair: Repair weakened pelvic floor tissue to support pelvic organs.
  • Pelvic Reconstruction (Sacrocolpopexy): Surgically correct pelvic organ prolapse using mesh to hold the vagina in the correct position.
  • Salpingo-Oophorectomy: Remove the ovaries or fallopian tubes.
  • Total Hysterectomy: Remove the uterus and the cervix.

Gynecology-Oncology 

Hackensack Meridian Health offers a team of surgeons all board certified in gynecology-oncology. We partner with your cancer care team to offer innovative robotic surgery for the treatment of your cancer, to give you the best possible outcome while preserving as much of your function as possible. 

Conditions We Treat

Robotic Procedures

  • Partial Hysterectomy: Remove a woman's uterus, leaving the cervix intact.
  • Total Hysterectomy: Remove the uterus and the cervix.
  • Salpingo-Oophorectomy: Remove the ovaries or fallopian tubes.
  • Biopsy: Remove tissue samples for diagnostic purposes.

 

Advantages of Robotic Gynecology and Urogynecology Surgery Surgery

How Robotic Surgery Works

  • The robot’s surgical instruments and a camera are inserted into your body through several small incisions. 
  • The view of the surgical area from the surgeon’s control console is a 3D, high-definition image magnified ten times. 
  • Your surgeon performs your surgery by directing the robot’s movements in real time. The robot’s tools move with greater range of motion and precision than a human hand.  

Benefits of Robotic Surgery Compared to Traditional Surgery 

  • Smaller incisions and less tissue damage
  • Increased precision – with greater flexibility, stability and range of motion than a human hand
  • Decreased blood loss and reduced need for transfusions
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less pain after surgery
  • Smaller external and internal scars
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery and return to normal activities

How Robotic Surgery for Endometriosis Can Help with Infertility

Endometriosis is a condition that causes tissue similar to the type that grows inside a woman’s uterus to grow on the outside, often affecting the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and pelvic tissue. 

An Uncomfortable Situation

A Barnegat woman is back to enjoying her life after treatment for pelvic organ prolapse. Darlene Muller, a 78 year-old Barnegat resident, was uncomfortable. She was experiencing a heaviness in her pelvis along with a vaginal bulge.
