Drs. William L. Cody, B. Veeren Chithriki & Melissa O. Iyoyo at NORTH FLORIDA OB/GYN provide quality obstetrical & gynecological care. They also effectively utilize da Vinci® robotic surgery for gynecologic surgery and difficult gynecologic procedures. They explain that when medication and other treatments are unable to relieve symptoms, hysterectomy is often recommended to provide a more effective, definitive & long-term solution for excessive menstrual bleeding. The da Vinci® hysterectomy offers numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches, including significantly less pain, minimal blood loss & need for transfusion, fewer complications, shorter hospital stay, quicker recovery & return to normal activities, small incisions for minimal scarring, and better outcomes & patient satisfaction, in many cases.
Hysterectomy procedures are performed by Drs. Cody, Chithriki & Iyoyo using the da Vinci® surgical system, which enables them to operate with unmatched precision, dexterity and control. By overcoming the limitations of both traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci® is revolutionizing gynecologic surgery for women. They also use this same technique for myomectomy (fibroid removal).
