If you come in with an endometrial cancer, most of the time we’re able to cure that cancer with a minimally invasive surgery with patients going home the next day — compared to how they used to do the surgeries where [you] made a big incision and they would be in the hospital for three to five days or so.
One of the things that I specialize in is robotic or minimally invasive surgery. And a lot of patients — or a lot of other doctors — will hear that because patients are too obese — or morbidly obese — they’re not able to undergo that minimally invasive approach — or if they’ve had previous surgery. But actually we can do it now with a minimally invasive approach with the da Vinci robot.
