GYNECOLOGIC CANCER SURGERY

When surgery is suggested, we’ll make sure you get the best care possible from surgeons who have a long history of success. Dr. Finkelstein and her team specialize in minimally-invasive robotic surgery and advanced gynecological surgery.

ROBOTIC/MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY

For most patients, robotic surgery can offer numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal hysterectomy, particularly when performing more challenging procedures like radical hysterectomy for gynecologic cancer or sacrocolpopexy for pelvic organ prolapse. Potential benefits include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Better surveillance of the entire abdomen and pelvic area
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
