Today, the vast majority of gynecologic conditions that require surgery can now be treated effectively without a big incision, and with less pain. Recovery times are now measured in days rather than the usual weeks required with traditional surgery.

Robotic surgery provides many benefits to our patients.

  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain
  • Tiny incisions
  • Greater precision

No wonder more and more women are choosing Lakeside for robotic surgery.

Surgery Consultations and Support

If you have been putting off surgery to resolve a gynecologic problem, it’s time to ask your doctor about robotic surgery at Lakeside Robotic Surgery Institute for Women. The institute is unique to Lakeside Women’s Hospital in that it provides a comprehensive program for women who are dealing with difficult decisions related to surgery.

The program emphasizes the surgical options that are available for patients. One of these options is robotic surgery, which is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that minimizes blood loss, improves recovery time, and reduces the amount of discomfort and pain for the patient. The physicians and others who created this surgical technique felt that emotional support for the patient was extremely important. Therefore, we focus on providing as much support after the surgery as before.

The physicians and staff at Lakeside Robotic Surgery Institute for Women are always looking for ways to improve all areas associated with surgery for female patients. More than 600,000 GYN surgeries are performed in the United States each year. The institute strives to be one of the most comprehensive and technically advanced health care providers in our state.
