da Vinci® Surgery... Changing the Experience of Surgery at All About Women
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.
The da Vinci® Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.
Our physicians lead the Gainesville/Lake City area in robotic surgeries, performing several gynecological surgeries every week. As a preferred provider for referring doctors and with Dr. Agrios as chairman of the hospital-wide NFRMC robotics committee, our physicians hold expertise in these advanced techniques not found elsewhere locally.
For the patient, benefits may include:
- Shorter recovery time
- A faster return to normal daily activities
- And in many cases, better clinical outcomes
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring

da Vinci Hysterectomy
Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has for many years been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures. Yet with open surgery can come significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process and threat to surrounding organs and nerves.
For complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci System can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery.
