Surgical techniques have evolved significantly in recent years. In the past, a hysterectomy (the operation to remove the uterus) required a large abdominal incision. As a result, the patient had to stay in the hospital for a period ranging from one week to 14 days. Later, we opted for an incision in the bikini line region (Pfannenstiel incision or cesarean scar), which is aesthetically preferable for the patient. With the adoption of laparoscopic surgery, the incisions have become smaller, and the patient’s hospital stay duration has significantly decreased.
Minimally invasive interventions are often performed using a robot. When the robot is connected to traditional laparoscopic ports in the abdomen, the patient’s tissues undergo less trauma, leading to reduced postoperative pain. Additionally, the robot is equipped with a camera that offers a 10 times magnification and optical zoom function, along with 360-degree mobility, facilitating the surgery’s execution. The robot also allows us to switch to FireFly mode and mark lymph nodes in fluorescent green. Robotic operations are performed in the following cases:
