A combined robotic and laparoscopic surgery at Acibadem City Clinic Tokuda Hospital spared a woman with a pre-cancer condition from two large-scale open surgeries

Gynecologists and abdomen surgeons removed the uterus and treated a large hernia within a single minimally invasive surgery

Gynecologists and abdomen surgeons removed the uterus of a 60-y.o. patient and treated her large hernia within a single minimally invasive 2-in-1 surgery who suffered from a precancerous condition of the endometrium. The Da Vinci robot was used for removing the uterus, while a laparoscopic intervention treated a large re-occurring umbilical hernia. The latter is a common surgery, yet the unique element here is the multi-disciplinary approach applied in resolving the patient’s condition issues. Usually, these two should be large-scaled open surgeries requiring a recovery period of several months in between as well as after the 2nd intervention.

The patient was admitted at Tokuda Hospital to have her uterus removed after being diagnosed with a precancerous disease – an atypical endometrial hyperplasia. In many cases, this disease evolves to an endometrial carcinoma and the adequate treatment includes hysterectomy. Besides, the patient suffered from another disease – umbilical hernia, surgically treated in the past, yet reoccurring now in particularly large dimensions.

Members of this one-of-a-kind intervention include among the others: Dr. Marinov, Dr. Tanchev, Dr. Dimitrov, Dr. Katev.
