In the following video, Dr. Elizabeth Coronado demonstrates the best technique, safety steps and benefits for removing fibroid tumors robotically. She uses the Da Vinci Robotic Surgery technique.
Important safety steps to follow include:
- Medication before and after surgery
- IV during surgery that helps minimize bleeding
- MRI prior to surgery to identify the size, shape and location of the fibroids
- “Pearls on a string”: The technique of sewing the removed fibroids on a string prior to removal so that none are left behind.
Dr. Coronado prefers this technique, especially for women of child-bearing age who have fibroid tumors. Careful steps are taken to ensure the health of the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes so that women are able to carry children safely afterward.
