Robotics for Gynecology
Utilizing robotic technology, surgeons are able to treat many women who have complex gynecological problems, which traditionally would require large abdominal incisions resulting in significant postoperative pain, blood loss and scarring. Robotic-assisted surgery allows surgeons to perform more precise, minimally-invasive procedures designed to preserve the uterus. With the da Vinci Surgical System, physicians can remove fibroid tumors, perform hysterectomies, correct vaginal prolapse and treat certain types of gynecological cancers.
Surgeons also use the da Vinci robot for tubal restenosis (reversal of tubal ligation) with high successful outcomes.

Robotics for Thoracic Surgery
Thoracic surgery is the practice of medicine directed toward the surgical treatment of diseases of the chest including cancers of the lung, esophagus, and chest wall; birth defects of the chest; and tumors in the organs contained in the chest cavity.
Complex procedures like thoracic surgery require an excellent view of the operative field and the ability to maneuver instruments within the chest cavity. Thoracic surgery performed robotically provides better control, dexterity and visualization than with an open procedure, allowing surgeons to offer patients the benefits of minimally invasive surgery, including less scarring, pain, blood loss and infection risk, a shorter hospital stay, reduced recovery time and better clinical results.

Robotics for Urology
Robotic surgery has allowed surgeons the ability to perform more intricate procedures for the prostate, kidneys and bladder with minimally invasive incisions.
Surgeons have found that most urologic procedures can be performed in a minimally invasive manner. Currently robotic surgery is used in the treatment of prostate, kidney and bladder cancers as well as for other urological conditions.
