Women who are suffering from a Vaginal Vault Prolapse or Uterine Prolapse will require a sacrocolpopexy procedure. This surgical procedure provides the vagina with the support it needs by connecting the vault with the periosteum, which is located in the sacrum. This procedure is often required after a woman has a hysterectomy performed.
Formerly, women who needed a sacrocolpopexy had to have a conventional, invasive surgical procedure performed. Now, thanks to advanced technology and developments in research, Dr. Pedram Ilbeigi can offer women in Rancho Mirage and throughout the Inland Empire with the option of a da Vinci® Sacrocolpopexy.
The da Vinci® Sacrocolpopexy allows Dr. Ilbeigi to complete this procedure using minimally-invasive techniques. This ensures better results for the patient, and also allows the patient to benefit from a shorter recovery period.
As a urology expert, Dr. Ilbeigi believes that the da Vinci® surgical procedures are superior to conventional techniques, for it allows for minimal disruption to the rest of the body while still providing him with the opportunity to achieve optimum results with each patient. There are many benefits to this approach, including:
A minimized risk of infection. As less of the patient’s body is being exposed and less invasive work is required to complete the operation, he or she is not as prone to infection.
Fewer side effects associated with this operation than other procedures. Minimally-invasive surgical procedures do not disrupt as many other organs in the body, so patients experience less side effects.
Less pain experienced, when compared to other surgeries. Again, due to the precise, minimally-invasive techniques that are used, patients will not experience as much pain.
A shorter recovery period. Patients will spend less time in the hospital and will be able to return home sooner rather than later in order to rest and recover when they choose the da Vinci® Sacrocolpopexy.
The da Vinci® surgical system allows Dr. Ilbeigi to utilize a robotic surgery assistance in order to complete even the most complex surgical procedures. The robot assistant is controlled by the surgeon, who operates out of a console. Dr. Ilbeigi is in control of the da Vinci® system the entire time. While it is a robotic assistant, the da Vinci® surgical system cannot make its own decisions or move on its own. It requires a qualified, highly-trained and educated surgeon to operate it.
Patients who are suffering from Vaginal Vault Prolapse or Uterine Prolapse should talk about their individual treatment options with Dr. Ilbeigi. While the da Vinci® Sacrocolpopexy is an excellent option and will work well for most patients, it’s important to consider individual factors about each case before making the final decision.
Dr. Ilbeigi encourages any patient who requires a Sacrocolpopexy to make a consultation appointment with him in order to discuss their options. At this appointment, Dr. Ilbeigi will perform an evaluation and assess each patient’s individual situation. It is at this point that he will be able to make a personal recommendation for the patient on whether the da Vinci® Sacrocolpopexy is the right choice for them.
