Exceptionally precise, minimally-invasive treatment for gynecologic cancer - so you can get back to doing the things you love.
At Middlesex Health, our expert gynecologic (GYN) surgeons use the da Vinci® Robot to perform more precise, more efficient, more effective cancer surgeries. This robotic surgical system, which is entirely controlled by the surgeon, has more flexibility than traditional open or laparoscopic procedures. It also provides your physician with a high-definition, 3D view of the surgical area throughout the entire procedure.
da Vinci® Robot-Assisted Surgery has a number of benefits, all of which will help you recover from surgery more quickly and with less pain.
There are many benefits to da Vinci® Robot-Assisted Surgery when compared to open surgery and older laparoscopic techniques.
Additionally, in the past, open surgery was the only option for some GYN cancers. The da Vinci® system can be used in most cases, so more women than ever have access to the most advanced treatment.
