Robotic Salpingo-Oophorectomy

Robotic Salpingo-Oophorectomy (surgical removal of both fallopian tubes and ovaries) is highly being used in treating various gynecologic Robotic Salpingo-Oophorectomyproblems.

Because theĀ  robotic procedure combines computer-guided surgical capabilities, the trauma-sparing benefits of a minimally-invasive surgery with superb 3-D, high definition visualization, it may offer gynecologic specialists different advantages, including the ability to remove abnormal tissues with best accuracy and, sometimes, work faster.

Robotic Salpingo Oophorectomy is an effective and an important surgical tool for treating suspicious ovarian masses or anything that cause pressure or pain. Such masses can be either malignant or benign that is frequently sent to the pathologist while an individual is under anesthesia. If the mass is benign, a straightforward surgery to remove fallopian tubes and ovaries is performed.

If the mass is malignant and the cancer is confined to the ovaries, Robotic Salpingo-Oophorectomy is often utilized as 1 portion of the full treatment and staging surgery for early stage of ovarian cancer. Robot-assisted procedure is an greatest tool for the endometrial cancer treatment.

Salpingo Oophorectomy is a standard part of the staging procedure and full treatment for such condition should be done in order to ensure that any microscopic cancer cells of ovaries are eliminated. Bilateral Salpingo Oophorectomy can be done in patients who are at great risk to develop either fallopian tube or ovarian cancer due to hereditary predispositions.

For these individuals, such surgery significantly reduces their risk for such cancers. Additionally, this procedure may dramatically decrease the risk of breast cancer among premenopausal women with significant family history of ovarian or breast cancer. While such surgery is familiar to the treatment for the benign ovarian masses and endometriosis, the doctor takes special care at the time of Robotic risk, decreasing procedure to be sure that the entire fallopian tube is removed due to the person’s possible risk of progressing a fallopian tube cancer.

In Robotic Salpingo Oophorectomy, 4 standard ports are installed in the patient’s abdomen using quarter-inch incisions, and instrument arms and robot’s camera are placed through ports. After that, the gynecologist locates the ovaries and blood vessels that supply the ovary, and also identifies the ureters (tubes that carrying urine to the bladder).

Finally, the surgeon uses robot’s instrument arms to detach fallopian tubes and ovaries from their attachment to the uterus and blood supply.

Robotic Salpingo Oophorectomy procedure creates less scarring. In such procedure, the dime size incision results in dramatically lower scars than with open surgery. In Robotic Salpingo Oophorectomy, the smaller incisions are used and resulting in much lower post surgery pain than the large abdominal incisions done in open procedure. With smaller incisions through Robotic Salpingo-Oophoectomy, most patients are able to return to normal activities within two to three weeks, compared six to eight weeks for open surgery.

The magnified 3D definition image provided by the da Vinci Si surgical system enables excellent visualization of the ovaries, blood vessels, and ureters during procedure. Most Robot-Assisted Salpingo Oophorectomies have been performed as part of surgical treatment for early-stage ovarian cancer, endometrial cancer, ovarian masses, and as a risk lowering procedure for prevention breast cancer, fallopian tube/ovarian cancer, endometrial cancer in women at great genetic risk for such diseases.
