Robotic Surgery Q & A

What is robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery is the perfect blend of human experience and state-of-the-art technology, allowing gynecologists to perform a number of minimally invasive procedures that used to require large incisions.

Using only a few small incisions about a quarter inch in size each, Dr. Williams is able to treat many benign gynecologic conditions with the aid of specialized tools and a video camera. In some cases, Dr. Williams is even able to avoid external incisions entirely by going in through your vagina.

During robotic surgery, Dr. Williams first threads a tiny camera into the surgical area to give him a clear 3D view of the operating field. Using other small access points, Dr. Williams threads specialized tools into the area, which are controlled by robotic arms. With a real-time video feed that Dr. Williams views on a monitor, he directs the tools to perform the needed surgery.

The robotic arms translate Dr. Williams’ directions in very small areas, allowing him an increased level of precision and accuracy. The robotic arms don’t work on their own and are under the constant guidance of Dr. Williams throughout the procedure.

What issues can robotic surgery correct?

Robotic surgery has found a home in many different medical fields, especially gynecology. Dr. Williams turns to robotic surgery for:

  • Removing uterine fibroids
  • Removing endometrial tissue and adhesions
  • Performing a hysterectomy
  • Correcting vaginal prolapse
  • Removing cysts

Whenever possible, Dr. Williams turns to this minimally invasive technique as robotic surgery greatly reduces your risk of infection and collateral tissue damage. As a result, you enjoy a greatly reduced recovery period.

Where is robotic surgery performed?

Dr. Williams performs robotic surgery at the Paris Regional Medical Center, a state-of-the-art facility equipped with the latest technology.

For most procedures, Dr. Williams prefers full sedation under the watchful eye of an anesthesiologist. Because of the reduced risk associated with robotic surgery, Dr. Williams is able to perform most procedures on an outpatient basis, which means you’re free to go home the same day.
