Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive alternative for open hysterectomies and other gynecological procedures typically associated with large incisions and long recovery times. At Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center and Chilton Medical Center, our teams of specialized surgeons use the da Vinci® surgical system to treat gynecologic conditions, such as:
Gynecologic robotic surgeries available at Morristown, Overlook and Chilton medical centers:
- Bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy
- Hysterectomy, including both radical and supracervical hysterectomy
- Ovarian cystectomy
- Surgical treatment of endometriosis
Potential benefits of gynecologic robotic surgery include:
- Less scarring, blood loss and pain
- Shorter hospital stay
- Quicker recovery time and return to daily activities
- Decreased risk of infection
A Leader in Gynecologic Robotic Surgery
Morristown Medical Center performs more robotic gynecologic surgeries, including those used in the treatment of cancerous conditions, than any other hospital in New Jersey. We're also the only hospital in the state to treat endometrial cancer patients with an add-on to the da Vinci Surgical System called Firefly™ Fluorescence Imaging.
Robotic Surgery for Cancers and Tumors
Robotic surgery offers cancer patients a minimally invasive alternative to open surgery and in some cases, may minimize or eliminate the need for chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
