The robotic surgery with the da Vinci machine gives the doctors 100% control of the device and also provides enhanced vision with a 3D high definition view of the inside of your body. Minimally invasive surgery requires no long stays at a hospital, so you can leave the office the same day as the procedure. If the medical team decides you need to stay overnight, they transfer you to a hospital.
During the procedure, the team applies a local anesthetic; or if the procedure takes longer, they administer general anesthesia. The procedure can cause mild discomfort but is tolerable. After the procedure, they treat any pain with over-the-counter pain medication. The treatment team gives you specific directions about what you can expect during and after your procedure.
Most procedures do not require a long recovery time. Once you are home from your surgery, you are encouraged to move around slowly and often. You may also have increased fatigue. Plenty of rest at night and a healthy diet speed your recovery. After one to two weeks, you’ll need a follow-up appointment. Once the team sees you for a postoperative appointment, you can return to work and normal activities if the team at DaVincii Obstetrics & Gynecology is satisfied with your healing progress.
If you are concerned you do not have enough time for a long hospital stay to correct reproductive problems, ask the professionals at DaVincii Obstetrics & Gynecology for their advice about laparoscopic surgery. Call to schedule your appointment today for a consultation.
