Apollo Hospitals today said it has reached a milestone by performing over 100 robot assisted myomectomies.
Dr Rooma Sinha, Senior Consultant Gynaecologist, Minimal Access & Robotic Surgeon, Apollo Health City, accomplished this distinction of performing the "largest series of robot assisted myomectomies, in South Asia", Apollo Hospitals said in a statement.
Removal of symptomatic fibroids with uterine preservation in women who wish to conceive or otherwise retain their uterus is called myomectomy.
Sangita Reddy, Joint Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals, said," Robot assisted surgery enables greater reach, manoeuvrability, very little blood loss and minimises internal disruption. This technique will become the mainstream in due course.
