A leader in surgical advances, Southern Regional was the area’s first hospital to perform a da Vinci robot-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy.
The da Vinci® Surgical System, which is powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology, makes it possible to perform complex surgery using a minimally-invasive approach that requires only small incisions.
Here’s how it works. The da Vinci robot is part of the da Vinci® Surgical System which allows surgeons to operate while viewing a 3-D image of the surgical field. The surgeon’s fingers grasp master controls that seamlessly translate the surgeon’s movements and allow surgical tools to be guided into the patient through small incisions.
With da Vinci, surgeons need to make only a few, very small incisions. This makes recovery faster and easier for patients.
Southern Regional also offers other minimally-invasive and non-invasive options for other gynecological needs. Learn about treating fibroids with fibroid embolizations.
Gynecological Cancer Care
Southern Regional’s experts are experienced in every aspect of gynecological oncology — from chemotherapy and radiation to surgery. We offer leading-edge technology and advanced treatments for patients in south metro Atlanta so they don’t have to travel to receive the best care.
Many gynecological cancers are treated primarily with surgery. Today, there are a variety of ways to treat these cancers surgically. And some can be taken care of using minimally-invasive techniques that allow for an easier recovery.
We understand that dealing with cancer, surgery and recovery is difficult, and that’s why we provide additional support and assistance to our patients — helping them cope with everything from stress to depression during their treatment and recovery.
