Dr. Morehead is pleased to offer robotic gynecologic surgery using the da Vinci surgical system. This technology provides better visualization, more precision, improved safety, and allows the performance of more complex surgeries using a minimally-invasive approach. It also has the advantage of patients usually experiencing less pain, less blood loss, lower infection risk, a shorter hospital stay, with a faster return to normal activities as compared to traditional surgical approaches. Hysterectomy, ovarian surgery, endometriosis surgery, and pelvic prolapse surgery are examples gynecologic procedures which may be better approached using the state of the art da Vinci system.
