Overland Park Regional Medical Center offers several minimally invasive gynecology surgery options, ranging from pelvic organ prolapse repair to hysterectomy. The COEMIG seal assures women that the hospital and its team of physicians are committed to excellence in minimally invasive gynecologic surgical care. Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has for many years been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures.
For complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, such as myomectomy, cervical/ovarian cancer, fibroids and endometriosis, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci System can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
