View a collection of da Vinci Surgery videos and educational webinars.
See real examples of the latest technology used in robotic-assisted GYN procedures and hear strategic insights from prominent da Vinci surgeons. Additional videos and documents can be found in the da Vinci Online Community.
Hysterectomy (Benign): urinary tract injury, vaginal cuff problem (separation, adhesions, granulation tissue, infection, cellulitis, hematoma), bladder injury, bowel injury, vaginal tear or laceration, vaginal shortening, voiding dysfunction, fistula formation: vesicovaginal, rectovaginal. Uterine tissue may contain unsuspected cancer. The cutting or morcellation of uterine tissue during surgery may spread cancer and decrease the long-term survival of patients.
Hysterectomy (Malignant): urinary tract injury, vaginal cuff problem (separation, adhesions, granulation tissue, infection, cellulitis, hematoma), bladder injury, bowel injury, vaginal tear or laceration, vaginal shortening, voiding dysfunction, fistula formation: vesicovaginal, rectovaginal.
Myomectomy: uterine perforation, uterine rupture, preterm birth, spontaneous abortion Uterine tissue may contain unsuspected cancer. The cutting or morcellation of uterine or fibroid tissue during surgery may spread cancer and decrease the long-term survival of patients.
Sacrocolpopexy: mesh erosion/infection (if mesh used in repair) with need for re-operation, rectal injury, bladder injury, rectocele, cystocele, urinary tract injury, vaginal cuff dehiscence, urinary incontinence, hematoma (retropubic, perineal or other).
Endometriosis resection: bowel injury, bladder injury, urinary tract injury.
Nahla Merhi, MD of Silver Cross Hospital demonstrates a Single-Site benign hysterectomy using the da Vinci Xi platform. Watch this video to see the easier setup, improved optics, and greater patient access with da Vinci Xi Single-Site technology (when compared to da Vinci Si Single-Site technology).
Charbel Salamon, MD of Morristown Medical Center demonstrates a post-hysterectomy sacrocolpopexy using the da Vinci Xi surgical system.
Watch a short video clip of Kenneth H. Kim, MD, of University of Alabama Birmingham Hospital using the da Vinci Xi® System and EndoWrist® Vessel Sealer to take down adhesions in a complex benign hysterectomy case.
Discover the dissection capabilities of the EndoWrist Vessel Sealer by watching a short video of Kenneth H. Kim, MD, of University of Alabama Birmingham Hospital, performing a da Vinci Xi procedure for endometrial cancer.
Michael C. Pitter, MD, of New York Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, uses the new Long Bipolar Grasper in a myomectomy on the da Vinci Xi System. Watch this clip for hints on how to maximize the use of this instrument.
In this video clip, Nahla Merhi, MD, of Silver Cross Hospital, demonstrates her port placement for a sacrocolpopexy with the da Vinci Xi System.
Cindy Mosbrucker, MD, of St. Anthony Hospital, shows how to carefully resect an endometrioma capsule in an endometriosis resection procedure for a patient with stage III disease. See how Dr. Mosbrucker utilizes the monopolar hook on the da Vinci Si® System.
Nahla Merhi, MD, of Silver Cross Hospital, exhibits the setup and patient access of the da Vinci Xi Single-Site platform.
Thomas Shultz, MD, of Cox Health Systems, shares how adopting multimodal analgesia (MMA) has enabled him and his partners to discharge 96.5% of their patients as outpatient since 2008. Dr. Shultz explains the MMA protocol he uses, data from his patient case series, and the health economic impact of adopting this procedure.
Anesthesiologist Josh Lumbley, MD, from Columbus, OH, discusses patient physiology during robotic-assisted surgery. Hear how Dr. Lumbley adopts a safe and efficient OR team approach to address anesthetic concerns and optimize surgical outcomes for all his cases, including for obese patients.
