Ovarian Cystectomy | Dr Iris Orbuch | Los Angeles
Dr. Iris Orbuch uses the da Vinci robot system to treat ovarian cysts using minimally invasive surgery. The da Vinci system with its 3-D High Definition Camera allows for precise removal of cysts using robotic ovarian cyst. The wristed instrumentation allows for precise removal of ovarian cysts which is so important for fertility preservation. Dr Orbuch makes sure to only remove the ovarian cyst while preserving the remaining ovary. Dr Orbuch makes sure to leave the eggs within the ovary intact to allow for future fertility.
The da Vinci system can be utilized for robotic Ovarian Cystectomy (removal of an ovarian cyst) or robotic Oophorectomy (removal of an ovary). Using state of the art technology, a da Vinci robotic Cystectomy or Oophorectomy requires only a few incisions so you can get back to your life faster. With traditional open surgery, recovery time is often 6 weeks with patients’ remaining in the hospital for 2-3 days. In contrast, after ovarian cyst surgery utilizing the da Vinci Robot, a patient only goes home the same day. If your doctor recommends an Ovarian Cystectomy or Oophorectomy to treat your condition, you may be a candidate for da Vinci Surgery.
Common types of cysts removed utilizing the da Vinci robotic surgery system include Endometriomas, Dermoids, Serous/Mucinous Cystadenomas, as well as many others.
The da Vinci robotic ovarian cystectomy or oophorectomy offers women many potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:
