Keeping Women Healthy
Whether you’re embracing motherhood, seeking treatment for illness or maintaining wellness, Centerpoint Medical Center is committed to keeping women healthy. The Women's Center at Centerpoint Medical Center offers comprehensive services for infertility, perinatology, obstetrics, neonatology, gynecology, gynecologic oncology, urology and surgery. We also offer family-focused, comprehensive care that will enhance your birthing experience from conception throughout your pregnancy and care of your newborn.
Centerpoint Medical Center now has a robotic surgery program that focuses on the minimally invasive surgical needs of women. The centerpiece of the program is the state-of-the-art da Vinci® Surgical System, the latest robotic technology available today.
GYN procedures that traditionally have been done via open or laparoscopic surgery, including hysterectomy, tumor removal and other conditions related to the uterus and cervix, can now be performed with this new technology. The da Vinci System enables highly magnified visualization inside the body and greater precision while making it easier for surgeons to operate using small incisions. This innovation results in many potential patient benefits, including less risk of infection, blood loss, significantly less pain, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times.
Using the system, the surgeon operates while seated at a console viewing a 3D image of the surgical field. The surgeon’s fingers grasp the master controls below the display. The system seamlessly translates the surgeon’s hand, wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of surgical instruments inside the patient.
