Dr. Ehama specializes in performing gynecological surgery including hysterectomies utilizing the da Vinci robotic surgical system located at Central Peninsula Hospital. This high tech surgical system enables the surgeon to perform laparoscopic surgery utilizing a 3D high-definition camera and instruments inserted into the abdomen. The term “robotic” often misleads people. Robots don’t perform surgeries. The surgeon performs the surgery by using instruments via a console located in the operating room. Utilizing the da Vinci system is less invasive with a shorter length of hospital stay and faster recovery. For more information please do not hesitate to ask your provider about this innovative and effective option for gynecological surgery. You may also visit davincisurgery.com for more information.
