DaVinci Robotics Q&A
What is DaVinci robotics?
DaVinci is a robotic surgical system that aids in many surgeries and procedures available at Elite IVF. This advanced system helps the team perform safe minimally invasive operations with high-tech instruments and features, including:
- 3D imaging
- Four robotic arms
- An ergonomic surgeon’s console
- Wristed instruments with a high range of motion
Your provider can tell you exactly how the DaVinci system will assist in your surgery. While the term “robotics” might lead you to believe that a robot performs your surgery, in reality, the skilled surgeons and experts at Elite IVF perform the procedure using the DaVinci system for assistance. The system creates a detailed, 3D view of the surgical area and allows for smaller, more precise incisions.
Which procedures utilize DaVinci robotics?
The team at Elite IVF employs the DaVinci robotic system for several available surgeries and procedures. If they choose to use the system for your operation, they tell you how it works and its responsibility during the process.
DaVinci robotics can help the team perform:
In vitro fertilization
In vitro fertilization is a way to get pregnant when traditional methods have proven unsuccessful for you. The DaVinci system can help your providers place a fertilized embryo safely into your uterus.
Other infertility treatments
The Elite IVF team might use the DaVinci robotic system to perform treatments for specific causes of infertility. For example, the system can aid in the removal of noncancerous growths like fibroids or polyps. It can also help treat endometriosis.
What are the benefits of using DaVinci robotics in treatment?
Surgeries using DaVinci robotics have many advantages over more traditional methods of operation for infertility and in vitro fertilization. The system has an impressively high success rate, especially in gynecological treatment settings. The team at Elite IVF can give you the full details according to the specific procedure you need. Generally, the benefits include:
- Smaller incisions
- Less recovery time
- Better control and precision
