Minimally Invasive and Robotic-Assisted Gynecologic Surgery

Today, many gynecologic surgeries can be accomplished using minimally invasive, laparoscopic or robotic surgical techniques, including hysterectomies and fibroid removals. 

These advanced procedures benefit patients in many ways:

  • Reduced post-operative pain and discomfort
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery and return to normal daily activities
  • Less scarring and improved cosmetic appearance

daVinci Surgical Robotic System 

Robotic-assisted gynecologic surgery is a rapidly advancing field. The da Vinci Surgical Robotic System incorporates the latest advances in robotics and computer technology to give surgeons exceptional control of instruments and clear three-dimensional views similar to those obtained in traditional open surgery. 

Dr. Anne Kalter and Dr. Lauren Lessard perform robotic hysterectomies and myomectomies at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital. Dr. Kalter is a proctor for Intuitive Surgical and teaches other doctors around the country how to perform the procedure. She is also head of the Robotics Committee at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital.

Laparoscopic Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy (LAVH)

LAVH is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure using laparoscopic techniques and instruments to remove the uterus through the vagina. Sometimes, one or both fallopian tubes and ovaries are also removed. The greatest advantages of a LAVH are a shorter hospital stay, a shorter recovery time and less post-operative pain compared to an abdominal hysterectomy. 

Dr. KalterDr. Lessard and Dr. Card are all skilled laparoscopists and trained in LAVH.
