Minimally Invasive Robotic Hysterectomy

hys photoThis procedure is for patients suffering from a wide array of uterine related ailments that include but are not limited to uterine fibroids, uterine prolapse, cancer of the uterus, cervix and/or ovaries, endometriosis and more. The procedure is a minimally invasive robotic method used to remove the uterus and possibly the cervix, fallopian tubes and/or ovaries. Training for this procedure is currently limited virtual reality simulators and cadaveric simulation which do not provide a high fidelity training scenario. Our model is a customizable full procedural simulator of the surgery which allows for both partial and full hysterectomy approaches.
