Gynecology

 

Gynecological procedures are now being performed at Copper Ridge Surgery Center with the state-of-the-art da Vinci Surgical System.

The da Vinci Surgical System is designed to help surgeons perform minimally invasive surgery and provides them with high-definition 3D vision, magnified view, and robotic and computer assistance. The da Vinci Systems are not programmed to perform surgery independently, but instead, the procedure is performed entirely by a surgeon who controls the system. 

“The da Vinci Surgical System may be the most effective treatment option, making it a benefit for all women who require surgery for gynecological issues. There are many benefits to the patient by using this robotic-assisted technology. The da Vinci Surgical System is less invasive, and patients experience less scar tissue and less post-op pain. Our surgical patients experience faster recovery and can have their procedure done in an Ambulatory Surgery setting,” states William E. Nowak, D.O.

"All of the staff were incredible - particularly the nurses that won over my 4-year old in record time, so that he happily and willingly went back with them for his surgery with no hesitation, and the nursing staff that helped care for him post-op. Truly incredible people!"
