da Vinci Robot Q & A

What is the da Vinci robot?

The da Vinci robot is a state-of-the-art technology that enables Dr. Stevenson to carry out gynecological surgeries with greater precision, ensuring improved patient outcomes.

The da Vinci robot consists of three components:

Surgeon console

The surgeon console is the place where Dr. Stevenson sits while performing your surgery. The console provides a close-up three-dimensional image of the surgery site, so Dr. Stevenson has a clear view of the inside of your body. He operates the surgical instruments from the surgeon console, directing the da Vinci robot to carry out the actual procedure.

Patient cart

The patient cart houses the da Vinci robotic parts. The cart is right next to the operating table, so the robot arms have easy access to you and can perform the surgery under Dr. Stevenson’s control.

Vision cart

The vision cart provides the communication link between Dr. Stevenson at the surgeon console and the da Vinci robot on the patient cart.

What is the da Vinci robot used for?

Dr. Stevenson uses the da Vinci robot to carry out minimally invasive procedures so that you don’t need to undergo conventional surgery. The da Vinci robot enables him to use laparoscopic techniques that involve making several small incisions just large enough to pass a camera on a flexible tube into the surgery site.

The camera on the laparoscope relays high-definition video to Dr. Stevenson’s surgeon console, so he can see clearly and direct the da Vinci robot’s arms. The robot maneuvers the instruments with great dexterity and precision, minimizing the amount of tissue trauma.

Laparoscopic surgery using the da Vinci robot has several advantages over conventional surgery, including reduced risk of infection and other complications, less pain and scarring, and shorter recovery times.

What kind of surgeries does the da Vinci robot carry out?

The da Vinci robot is ideal for helping Dr. Stevenson carry out many gynecological procedures, including:

  • Hysterectomies
  • Pelvic organ prolapse surgery
  • Myomectomy (fibroid removal)
  • Endometriosis resection
  • Vaginal vault suspension

Dr. Stevenson has considerable experience using the da Vinci robot and has completed two courses of advanced training at Intuitive Surgical, the makers of the da Vinci robotic system. Such is his expertise that Dr. Stevenson has been a national trainer, instructing other surgeons in using the da Vinci robot.
