Gynecologic Oncology

Our robotic gynecologic oncology team is dedicated to providing care using the most advanced minimally invasive technology available today. Our research and treatment options improve the clinical outcomes for precancerous lesions and gynecologic cancers in our patients. Our gynecologic oncology surgeons have extensive experience treating a wide range of benign and malignant conditions.

Robotic Gynecologic Procedures

  • Hysterectomy – including radical hysterectomy, simple hysterectomy, pelvic and para-aortic lymph node dissections in the context of treating cervical and uterine cancers as well as all other types of gynecological malignancies
  • Salpingo-Oophorectomy – removal of ovary, complete, partial, unilateral or bilateral with or without hysterectomy for treatment of ovarian cyst, pre-cancerous lesions, adnexal or pelvic mass, including removal of ovary and staging of ovarian cancer
  • Risk-Reduction – hysterectomy and removal of ovaries as risk-reduction surgery in patients at risk for gynecologic cancer
  • Fibroids

Conditions treated with Robotic Surgery

  • Adenomyosis
  • Cervical cancer
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Endometrial cancer
  • Endometriosis
  • Morbid obesity
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Uterine bleeding
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Uterine cancer

Single-Site Hysterectomy

UC Health is proud to be the first in Cincinnati offering a cutting-edge, minimally-invasive alternative to patients who need a hysterectomy. Using the most advanced technology available today, UC Health Gynecologic Oncology uses the di Vinci robotic system to perform the hysterectomy, through only one small incision in the navel. The incision is typically hidden, leaving the patient virtually scar-free.

The single-site hysterectomy has several benefits, including:

  • Less visible scaring
  • Less pain and blood loss
  • Faster recovery time
  • Shorter hospital stay

About The Procedure

Typically, hysterectomies performed with robotic surgery require 3 to 5 separate incisions around the abdomen. With the single site hysterectomy, the surgeon seated at a console, viewing 3D, high-definition image of the patient’s anatomy. The surgeon makes a small incision in the navel and uses the viewer to move the instrument’s arms and camera. In real-time, the system translates the surgeon’s hand and finger movements into more precise movements of the miniaturized instruments inside the patient.
