Whenever medically appropriate, Dr. Webb uses the da Vinci Surgical System to treat gynecological conditions such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic prolapse and excessive menstrual bleeding. The system, which offers the latest in surgical and robotic technologies, is ideal for performing complex and delicate surgery as it enables physicians to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
Dr. Webb is one of the top surgeons in the Southwest when it comes to performance of hysterectomy (the surgical removal of the uterus) and other procedures using da Vinci robotics and now offers single incision hysterectomy. With da Vinci Single-Site Surgery, the uterus and possibly the ovaries and fallopian tubes are removed through the belly button using state-of-the-art instruments.
“The da Vinci System is one of the most significant advancements in modern medicine,” said Dr. Webb. “It enables me to perform a host of common procedures in a less invasive manner than ever before. The best thing about it is that patients are delighted with the results, the recovery time and the minimal scarring.”
