Gynecologic Cancer Surgery
A gynecologic cancer diagnosis is both frightening and confusing. Choosing the best treatment is easier when patients understand their options. Previously, these options were limited to traditional open surgery – a method that requires a large incision, substantial scarring and a long, painful recovery.
Today, most women with uterine, cervical and some ovarian cancers have surgical alternatives. At South Miami Hospital, our surgeons perform many life-saving gynecologic cancer treatments without a large incision. With robotic technology, they can operate deep inside the abdomen through tiny incisions. Using specialized instruments and multi-image cameras, our surgeons target the cancerous area with pinpoint accuracy. For patients, this means a faster, less painful recovery and healthier prognosis.
