Whenever possible, minimally-invasive female surgery treatment options such as laparoscopic surgery are the most ideal solution to solving medical conditions including fibroid uterus, endometriosis, and pelvic organ prolapse; and with the technological advances in medicine, robotic surgeries have been on the rise, most notably the da Vinci procedure. At Coyle Institute, we have years of experience in treating women for a wide range of urogynecological issues; and we’re proud to provide our unique level of expertise to the women in our care. As the nation’s first board-certified Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Michael Coyle has brought his specialty as a urogynecologist and innovative use of da Vinci® robot surgery to the Gulf Coast, providing his patients with treatment that is unsurpassed in this area.
Despite its obvious advantages, robotic laparoscopic surgery is sometimes only explored when other methods have failed or are simply not viable, due to the fact that not all physicians are familiar with such highly-advanced procedure and feel more comfortable in recommending and conducting traditional open surgeries. As a form of laparoscopic surgery, however, da Vinci® surgery has become known for the ways that it benefits both patient and doctor, with results that are more effectively achieved with less recovery time as well as requiring less time in the operating room. Due to the very nature of the system, da Vinci® is able to reach areas of the female pelvic region that are not easily accessible to the human hand and eye without open incision, thereby allowing the operating surgeon to perform various procedures more quickly and more accurately, which ultimately means greater success.
