At Florida Institute of Reproductive Medicine, we are committed to utilizing the most advanced technology and medical procedures available today. Besides minimally-invasive surgeries such as hysteroscopy and laparoscopy, we are offer state-of-the-art da Vinci robotic-assisted surgeries for reproductive surgical procedures through our fellowship trained robotic surgeon, Dr. Daniel Duffy and Dr. Melinda Henne. This surgical system provides unparalleled precision for even the most complex and delicate of gynecologic procedures. The addition of the da Vinci Surgical System adds yet another advanced technological procedure to our comprehensive list of services.

The da Vinci® Surgical System is an effective, minimally invasive alternative to both open surgery and laparoscopy. Performed through the smallest incisions, the robotic approach offers definitive treatment with the potential for significantly less pain, a shorter hospital stay, faster return to normal daily activities and potentially better clinical outcome.  During robot-assisted surgery, the surgeon’s hands control the instruments in the robot’s arms which can rotate in any direction. The surgeon sits at a console and performs the procedure using an enhanced, three-dimensional image. By contrast, standard laparoscopic surgery only allows the surgeon to see a two-dimensional image.

Robot-assisted surgery has all of the advantages of laparoscopic surgery — faster healing, less pain, fewer complications and less scarring — plus a three dimensional image and increased surgical control. This allows for nearly all procedures such that otherwise required open incisions to be performed laparoscopically. In addition, the more detailed precise nature of this technique can also be beneficial in other surgical settings.

Reproductive surgical procedures which can benefit from the use of the da Vinci® Surgical System include:

I wanted to take a moment and thank the FIRM for helping me through some of the most difficult times in my life. This is going to be long so bear with me! I was born with a septate uterus which has caused multiple losses throughout the years.  I came to Dr. Duffy with little hope, I honestly thought I would never be able to carry a pregnancy to term. I had been to fertility specialists in the past, but no one had ever made me feel 100% comfortable…until I met Dr. Duffy. It hasn’t been the easiest year for me, I had many bumps in the road, but Dr. Duffy held my hand every step of the way. When one thing failed he always had a backup plan and a different approach to fixing my problem.  Yesterday was one of the best days of my life because he finally fixed my problem and I am now able to stay pregnant. Words will never explain how grateful I am for him coming into my life. I would recommend Dr. Duffy to anyone looking for a miracle, especially those who have a septate uterus or other uterine anomalies.
