Gynecological Surgery

For patients requiring gynecological surgery, surgeons at St. Anthony’s Hospital offer procedures on both an outpatient and inpatient basis. Many gynecological conditions can be treated through a minimally invasive approach. Robotic surgery is an alternative to traditional surgery and offers many benefits to patients including less pain, a faster recovery, shorter hospital stay, less risk of infection and smaller scar. Surgeons also benefit from robotic surgery by gaining a high-resolution visual field, enhanced dexterity and better access to surgical sites.

At St. Anthony’s Hospital, our surgeons use Firefly™ technology for robotic surgeries.  Firefly™ uses a special dye that highlights the difference between cancerous and healthy tissues. It is especially effective during surgery for kidney, colon and uterine cancer. Learn more about Firefly technology.
