All About the Da Vinci Surgical System

Surgery can play an important role in treating infertility and helping a woman get pregnant. A fertility doctor may conduct a surgical procedure that makes it possible for a woman to conceive naturally. Some women are skeptical about undergoing a procedure because it can be painful, require heavy pain medications, and put them at risk for infection and blood loss.

Here at Carolinas Fertility Institute, we are pleased to use the Da Vinci Surgical System to perform surgical procedures in a minimally invasive manner. This revolutionary system allows women to achieve their dream of becoming pregnant without the discomfort and risk of a traditional open surgery.

The Da Vinci Surgical System takes advantage of cutting-edge robotics and allows even the most complex procedures to be performed with very small incisions and incredible control and precision. Dr. Tamer Yalcinkaya is pleased to offer Da Vinci Robotic Surgery as an alternative to more invasive types of surgery.

He is one of the few doctors in the area who has completed extensive training with the Da Vinci robot, demonstrated advanced surgical skills, and performed a large number of robotic surgical procedures to assist women struggling with infertility.

What Happens During Da Vinci Robotic Surgery

During Da Vinci Robotic Surgery, Dr. Yalcinkaya’s hands control the instruments in the arms of the robot which can rotate in any direction. He sits at a console and conducts the surgery by using a high-definition three-dimensional image.

This differs from traditional surgeries where he can only see a two-dimensional image and has less control. By making a few small incisions, Dr. Yalcinkaya and the Da Vinci robot make a great team and eliminate the large incisions and long recovery periods that come with open procedures.

Benefits of Da Vinci Robotic Surgery

Women who undergo Da Vinci Robotic Surgery can enjoy a wide variety of benefits. Some of these benefits include less pain, scarring, and blood loss, a shorter recovery period, a faster return to everyday activities, and improved clinical outcomes.

Types of Reproductive Issues Da Vinci Robotic Surgery May Treat

Dr. Yalcinkaya may recommend this minimally invasive type of surgery to women with a variety of issues related to the female reproductive system including:

  • Blocked fallopian tubes
  • Pelvic adhesions
  • Endometriosis
  • Tubal reanastomosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
