Dr. Kelly Hankins offers robotically-assisted gynaecologic surgery at Gosford Private Hospital.Procedures performed include hysterectomy, ovarian cystectomy, and excision of endometriosis for certain women. The state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi surgical system offers a variety of advantages over traditional laparoscopy; however, both are considered minimally-invasive surgery. The surgeon performs the majority of the procedure from the robotic console. Compared to laparoscopy, the robot offers increased range of motion, improved dexterity, and enhanced visualisation, which is especially critical when working around delicate pelvic structures. Patients are often able to go home after a short stay in hospital, and most women report little or no significant pain after surgery.
