Robotic Surgery for Female Reproductive & Sexual Health Conditions
The gynecologic robotic surgery team at NYU Langone’s Robotic Surgery Center offers procedures for a wide range of conditions, including advanced endometriosis, uterine fibroids, pelvic pain, and heavy bleeding, as well as cancer-staging procedures.
The robotic platform has enabled us to perform various complex procedures, including the removal of large fibroid tumors through tiny incisions. This allows for much speedier recovery, significantly less pain and bleeding, and quicker return to normal activities.
We use one of the world’s most experienced advanced MRI imaging programs to maximize outcomes during robotic-assisted treatment of endometriosis. Our goal is to manage the condition and alleviate the pain and suffering of our patients while preserving fertility.
In addition, our sophisticated technology allows us to perform “single site” robotic-assisted gynecologic procedures for certain women. This means surgery can be performed through a single incision in the navel that leaves a nearly invisible, hidden scar.
Our gynecology robotic surgery team routinely ranks among the highest volume centers in the country. Physicians from around the nation and world travel here to observe our surgeons use the most-advanced techniques and minimally invasive approaches to managing complicated gynecologic conditions including uterine fibroids, endometriosis and gynecologic cancer.
The gynecologic conditions for which we offer robotic surgery include the following:
- cancer risk reduction for women at high risk of developing ovarian cancer or endometrial cancer
- chronic pelvic pain
- endometriosis, through NYU Langone’s Endometriosis Center
- hysterectomy for pelvic organ prolapse
- robotic adnexal procedures
- robotic myomectomy
- supracervical hysterectomy
- uterine bleeding
- uterine fibroids
- uterine prolapse
- vaginal prolapse after hysterectomy
