A Leader in Robotic Gynecologic Surgery

When you choose Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies for your gynecologic surgery, you can rest assured your doctor will use the most advanced technology available to perform your procedure, so you can get back to living your normal, busy life, pain-free.  

With your comfort and quality of life in mind, we offer one of the most advanced surgical technologies available: the da Vinci® Surgical System. This revolutionary technology uses a surgeon-controlled robotic arm to provide the most accurate and precise movements possible during surgery. Robotic surgery offers the advantages of smaller incisions, less blood loss, fewer complications, shorter hospital stays and faster recoveries. 

A Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery

Our surgeons have unparalleled expertise in robotic surgery and consistently deliver exceptional outcomes. We are a recognized epicenter for da Vinci® robotic surgery with doctors coming from across the country to receive training from our skilled surgeons. We have also been named a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery by the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC). This designation recognizes our commitment and ability to consistently deliver safe, effective, evidence-based care in a soothing, healing environment.

How Robotic-Assisted Surgery Works

The da Vinci® Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. It puts a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform that uses miniaturized instruments attached to robotic arms. They are able perform the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. 

During your procedure, the surgeon will make just a few small incisions — similar to traditional laparoscopy. What sets the da Vinci® System apart from laparoscopy is its powerful, magnified 3D, high-definition view and special instruments that are able to bend and rotate far more than the human wrist. As a result, this system enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, dexterity and control, which translates to smaller, less invasive and more precise movements during your surgery. This is especially critical in complex surgeries involving the reproductive organs.

Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Compared to conventional surgery which uses a long incision, or other minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopy, robotic-assisted surgery gives surgeons a new level of precision and control. 

For many patients, the benefits of robotic-assisted surgery include:

• Less pain and scarring
• Less risk of infection
• Less blood loss
• Faster recovery (often half the time of conventional surgery)
• Shortened hospital stay
• Improved clinical outcomes
