Myomectomy surgery performed by the da Vinci Robot offers our patients a minimally invasive solution using the most innovative technology, for them to have the best results possible.
Our surgeons control the da Vinci system, through small incisions. Using thin and small instruments that have more flexibility than human hands, allowing them to bend and rotate to have a better manipulating of the tissue. In addition, they have a 3D HD vision system, allowing them to have a magnified vision of the tissue. All these features, make for a more precise and controlled surgery.

The most common risks for a Traditional Myomectomy are:
- Tear in the uterus.
- Split or burst of the uterus.
- Pre-term births.
- Spontaneous abortion.
- Unsuspected uterine tissue with cancer.
- Possible spread of the cancer.
For patients, undergoing the da Vinci assisted Myomectomy, the possibility of having the same risks as a traditional surgery is lower since it’s a more precise and controlled surgery. However, they can experience the following risks:
- Injury to other tissues and organs.
- Conversion to other surgical techniques, involving: longer time in surgery, additional time under anesthesia.
- Increased rate of post-op complications since the surgery is more invasive.
- Pulmonary embolism.
Our Myomectomy patients will have a proper evaluation and discuss their case with our medical team. Together they should review all available information and make an informed decision. However, if patients are not candidates for a traditional laparoscopic surgery they are not candidates for the da Vinci surgery.
* There is no guarantee all patients will have the same results. Prostatectomy individual results will vary.
