Robotic assisted gynecological surgeries
We offer robotic assisted gynecological surgeries to patients that qualify, thanks to Exeter Hospital’s da Vinci Xi surgical robot. Dr. Antonio Gargiulo, director of robotic surgery at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston, and medical director of the Center for Reproductive Care at Exeter Hospital, has been performing robotic surgery for 12 years and has trained key members of the Exeter Hospital team. Among these are Evelyne Caron, MD
and Catherine Turer, MD
. Drs. Caron and Turer have trained on the da Vinci robot and are now performing a range of gynecological surgeries using this technology. The use of robotic surgery techniques has made complex surgeries faster and easier and has reduced the need for large incisions in many cases, allowing them to be done laporoscopically instead. Robotic surgery is especially helpful with fibroids, hysterectomies, and endometriosis issues.
