Da Vinci Robotic Surgery Q & A

Sherry Neyman, MD

What is da Vinci® surgery?

The da Vinci Robotic surgical system makes it possible for Dr. Sherry Neyman to perform a variety of gynecological surgeries without large incisions. The system uses a magnified system and tiny instruments that bend and rotate beyond the capabilities of a human hand. This technology allows Dr. Neyman to perform surgery with enhanced vision capabilities and greater control and precision.  

The da Vinci system translates Dr. Neyman’s hand movements into much smaller, more exact movements with the instruments she needs to perform your surgery. She sees a high-definition, 3D view inside your body, through the help of a laparoscope — a tiny tube with a camera at the end.

What types of surgery are available with the da Vinci system?

Doctors all over the world use the da Vinci surgery system for numerous types of surgeries, including cardiac, head and neck, and urology issues. Dr. Neyman performs a variety of gynecological surgeries with the da Vinci system, including:

  • Hysterectomy: removes the uterus
  • Ovarian cystectomy: removal of benign ovarian masses
  • Oopherectomy: removal of ovary, including risk reduction for BRAC + patients
  • Endometriosis treatment: excision and electrocautery of lesions
