Robotic Reverse Sterilization Surgery

For women who have undergone sterilization and would like to reverse their procedure, "tubal reanastomosis" is available with the assistance of da Vinci technology. Robot-assisted tubal reanastomosis now allows surgeons to perform sterilization reversals with all the advantages of minimally invasive procedures with far more precision than conventional laparoscopy. This translates into shorter hospital stay, with most patients returning home the same day as surgery. It also leads to lesser post-operative pain and a significantly more rapid return to normal daily activities.

Benefits of da Vinci Robotic Gynecologic Surgery

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. Yet, open surgery can cause significant pain, physical trauma and a long recovery process. For women facing gynecologic surgery, the period of pain, discomfort and extended time away from normal daily activities that usually follows traditional surgery can also cause significant anxiety.

da Vinci enables GYN surgeons to perform more complex operations through just a few tiny incisions, thereby minimizing the need to perform traditional abdominal (open) surgery. As a result, da Vinci GYN surgeons can offer the benefits of minimally invasive surgery to a broader range of patients. Potential patient benefits include:

  • Shorter hospital stay (one day in most cases versus 3-5)
  • Significantly less pain post-operatively (often only over-the-counter pain meds required)
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities (1-2 weeks versus 6-8 weeks)
  • Fewer complications and less risk of infection
  • Less scarring: small, dime-sized incisions versus 6-8 inch scar

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed since surgery is specific to each patient and procedure.
