New Robotic Surgery at Singapore General Hospital for gynaecological conditions

New Robotic Surgery at Singapore General Hospital for gynaecological conditions
 

  • The new Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery Section at the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology (O&G) at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) brings international expertise and technologies to provide a service in which more women can benefit from the advantages of minimally invasive surgery.

Since the first laparoscopic hysterectomy was performed by Harry Reich in the USA in 1988, we have learned that minimally invasive surgery has considerable benefits for the patient compared with open surgery. These are mainly less postoperative pain, shorter hospital stay and a faster return to normal activities as well as improved cosmesis.

Robotic surgery is a recent technological advance that potentially improves outcomes in more complex cases and allows more gynaecologists the opportunity to offer minimally invasive surgery to their patients so that they can benefit from the above advantages.

Robotic surgery was first introduced for gynaecology in 2005 and now offers an alternative minimally invasive approach for benign and oncological procedures including simple and radical hysterectomy, myomectomy, complex endometriosis, sacrocolpopexy and lymph node dissections.
