Gynecologic Procedures at Medical City Dallas
If you need surgery to treat your gynecologic condition(s), you may be a candidate for robotic surgery — a safe, effective and minimally invasive procedure. Using the most advanced technology available today, the da Vinci® Surgical System allows your doctor to perform delicate and complex operations through a few tiny incisions with increased vision, precision, dexterity and control.
Thanks to the latest evolution in surgical technology, doctors have an effective alternative to traditional open and laparoscopic surgery that offers patients the best of both approaches: da Vinci Surgery. With the assistance of the da Vinci® Surgical System, surgeons can operate through tiny incisions of 1-2 cm and with greater vision, precision, dexterity and control than ever before.
Medical City surgeons use the daVinci Surgical System to perform the complex operation through one tiny scar in the navel. Benefits of the surgery include minimal pain, low blood loss fast recovery time, a short hospital stay and minimal scarring.Learn About Robotic Hysterectomy

Our mission is to help women maintain optimal health through every stage of life.
Women with early stages of gynecologic cancer are often treated with a hysterectomy - the surgical removal of the uterus. Gynecological cancers include cervical, endometrial and ovarian. Medical City’s physicians are trained for both traditional surgery and the newer daVinci® Surgical System.
Robotic surgery is the least invasive type of surgery with the least amount of post-operative complications. Women having robotic surgery generally experience less pain and blood loss and their hospital stay is much shorter than with traditional surgery. The Texas Institute for Robotic Surgery at Medical City allows women to have a faster general recovery period and return to normal activities in a shorter amount of time.
Medical City Women’s offers a monthly hysterectomy class to:
- Prepare women for surgery by discussing what they can expect before and after
- Discuss general plan of care and expectations during hospital stay
- Discuss pain control interventions and options
- Review post-hospitalization care
- Review and discuss the emotional changes a woman experiences after a hysterectomy and how to cope with these changes
- Tour the facility and engage in an informative question and answer period
The minimally invasive da Vinci® Surgical System can also be used for other gynecological procedures including:
- Surgery for Endometriosis / Adenomyosis
- Surgery for Excessive Menstrual Bleeding
- Surgery for Uterine Fibroids
- Surgery for Vaginal Prolapse
