The board-certified gynecology surgeons of Eastside OB/GYN utilize minimally invasive and robot-assisted gynecologic surgical techniques.
Women today have many more options than ever before for the surgical treatment of gynecologic conditions. Compared to traditional open surgery, minimally invasive surgery offers patients many benefits.
da Vinci Robotic Assisted Surgery
Our board-certified surgeon, Dr. Christina Tun, has specialized experience in the da Vinci robotic surgical system.
Today, many gynecologic procedures are performed using minimally invasive laparoscopic or robotic-assisted surgery, possibly with da Vinci technology.
Both minimally invasive approaches require one or a few small incisions that doctors use to insert surgical equipment and a camera for viewing. In laparoscopic surgery, doctors use special long-handled tools to perform surgery while viewing magnified images from the laparoscope (camera) on a video screen.
Surgeons using da Vinci technology may be able to remove your uterus through either a few small incisions (cuts) or through one small incision in your belly button using Single-Site® technology. During surgery, your surgeon sits at a console next to you and operates using tiny instruments.
