Ovarian Cystectomy | Dr. Laurence Orbuch
Dr. Laurence Orbuch uses the da Vinci robot system to treat ovarian cysts using minimally invasive surgery. The da Vinci system, with its endowrist instrumentation, allows for precise removal of ovarian cysts which is so crucial for fertility preservation. It allows for preservation of normal ovarian tissue while removing the entire cyst wall and its content.
The 3-D High Definition Camera, and its superior optics, further enhances Dr. Orbuch’s ability for precision in ovarian cystectomy. Dr. Orbuch makes sure to only remove the ovarian cyst while preserving the remaining ovary and the precious eggs within the ovary for future fertility.
The da Vinci system can be utilized for robotic Ovarian Cystectomy (removal of an ovarian cyst) or robotic Oophorectomy (removal of an ovary). Using state of the art technology, da Vinci robotic Cystectomy or Oophorectomy requires only a few incisions, so you can return to normal activities faster.
With traditional open surgery, recovery time is often 6 weeks with patients’ remaining in the hospital for 2-3 days. In contrast, utilizing the da Vinci Robot, a patient goes home the same day. If your doctor recommends an Ovarian Cystectomy or Oophorectomy to treat your condition, you may be a candidate for da Vinci Surgery.
Common types of cysts removed utilizing the da Vinci robotic surgery system include Endometriomas, Dermoid Cysts (Teratomas), Serous/Mucinous Cystadenomas, as well as many others.
The da Vinci robotic ovarian cystectomy or oophorectomy offers women many potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:
Benefits of Robotic Ovarian Cystectomy
- Less Pain
- Fewer complications
- Less Blood loss
- Shorter hospital stay
- Low risk of wound infection
