Surgery using the da Vinci™ robotic system is the most advanced, least invasive surgical method available to women today. A hysterectomy performed with the da Vinci™ robotic system may result in less scarring, less pain, less infections, and less blood loss than traditional surgical methods. Patients undergoing robotic surgery can expect shorter hospital stays, usually of just one night, and a faster return to their normal life activities. The da Vinci™ Surgical System enables our surgeons to perform advanced simple and radical surgeries with unmatched precision and control – using only a few small incisions.
The robot does not move without our skilled surgeons to direct its motions. Using special dyes and robotic fluorescent technology, we can more confidently and successfully isolate even small cancer cells during sentinel lymph-node mapping procedures. Robotic surgery is one of the many tools we use to expertly treat our patients and get our patients back to what matters most—LIFE!
Together, our physicians have performed thousands of procedures using this technology. Dr. Finkelstein is New Mexico’s leading Gynecologic Oncologist, certified in the use of the da Vinci™ robotic-assisted surgical system and has done more procedures robotically than 95% of surgeons nationally. Dr. Wisner has participated and authored many of the papers supporting the use of daVinci technology in sentinel lymph node mapping for women with cancer.
