Gynecological conditions cover a broad range of issues found in the female body. As with most specialties, gynecologists most frequently used tools are the examination of the patient’s medical history along with a thorough exam. While these exams can be intimate (more-so than a standard physical), they are critical to determining your overall gynecological health and well-being.

Gynecological symptoms can closely resemble those of other medical conditions or urological issues. Always be sure to schedule an appointment with your physician should any of the following symptoms occur:

  • Bleeding between periods
  • Frequent and urgent need to urinate
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding, particularly during or after intercourse
  • Pain or pressure in your pelvis that differs from menstrual cramps
  • Itching, burning, swelling, redness, or soreness in the vaginal area
  • Sores or lumps in the genital area
  • Vaginal discharge with an unpleasant or unusual odor, or of an unusual color
  • Pain or discomfort during intercourse

These symptoms can lead to a variety of diagnosis from you gynecologist. The most common of these include:

  • Unexpected pregnancy
  • Fibroid uterus
  • Polyps
  • Endometriosis
  • Perimenopausal
  • Menopausal uterine changes
  • Cysts
  • Tumors

Should any of these diagnoses occur, you should speak with your physician about your treatment options and what is right for you.

One option that may be presented to you is surgery. Surgical options for gynecological conditions are highly advanced and generally minimally invasive to reduce trauma on the body. Our most common gynecological procedures include:

  • Hysterectomy
  • Endometrial Resection
  • Ovarian Cystectomy
  • Myomectomy

Robotic Gynecology Surgery

During your gynecologic surgery, your skilled surgeon will be assisted by the newest robotic Surgical System as an advanced aid to your procedure. Your surgeon will make several small incisions, similar to traditional laparoscopy. Your surgeon will then use the advanced 3D, high-definition viewing capabilities of the system to help them navigate through your procedure. The robotic assistance offered by the Surgical System advances the surgical dexterity beyond the capabilities of the human had, giving your surgeon increased precision and control throughout your procedure.

Some of the benefits of robotic gynecologic surgery include:

  • Faster recovery time
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Less pain
  • Less scarring
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Shorter hospital stay
