“We believe strongly in the quality-of-life issues, maintaining a woman’s desire to feel whole. Our approach is to treat the whole person rather than a condition.” – Dr. Karen Nishida
Our experts have experience diagnosing and treating a wide range of conditions, from common to complex. We offer all gynecology services, from routine medical screenings to surgical reconstruction. Gynecologic problems, including heavy or painful menstrual periods, are relatively common and can have a substantial impact on quality of life. Women suffering from these types of problems are often unable to go about their daily lives and find themselves with limited options to address the pain and discomfort that they are experiencing, sometimes without explanation.
The Surgical Team at St. John’s Riverside Hospital is making gynecological care better for our patients. The team specializes in minimally invasive robotic-assisted procedures that result in a faster recovery and less scarring than open surgery.
Robotic Gynecological Surgery provides several benefits:
- Surgeons have a magnified 3D HD view during the procedure
- Wristed instruments bend and rotate as well as the human hand
- Advanced vision and precision results in greater control
- Fewer incisions means less risk of complications or infections
Performed through a few small incisions, minimally invasive gynecological surgery enables patients to heal faster and return to their regular life quicker. Robotic-assisted surgical procedures include; hysterectomies of benign and cancer based tumors, fibroid removal, lower urinary tract reconstruction, postpartum hernias, pelvic organ prolapse, as well as other gynecological surgeries.
Sometimes urology and gynecological challenges are cancer based. In that case the goal is to locate THE expert that can develop THE best strategic plan and time is of the essence. Look no further, St. John’s Riverside Hospital has some of the nation’s best trained to serve you. As innovators in minimally invasive procedures, some of our physicians were the first to perform a laparoscopic procedure that removes the lymph nodes using a minimally invasive approach for advanced-stage cervical cancer.
