Alexis Dominguez is a physician specializing in Obstetrics and Gynecology practicing in the medical offices of Cardella Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Urogynecology. The physician from Miami, Florida is specially trained in minimally invasive surgery and the Da Vinci Robotic System. With this training, Dominguez’s surgical procedures are designed to leave patients with the least amount of scarring and allow the patient a quicker recovery time.
Many surgeries have been performed with the Da Vinci Robotic System. Hysterectomies, the surgical procedure of removing the uterus, is one of the more common surgeries that uses the system. Alexis Dominguez says that the surgically is performed robotically. The abdomen is entered with a sheath like tool called a trocar that allows physicians to place the necessary instruments. One trocar is placed in the umbilical site, and then some are accessory points in the area. This helps the physicians have a triangulated visual field. Essentially they are able to see everything in 3-D. With a better visualization of the procedure, they can see the anatomy around the area including the pelvis and structures within the pelvis.
The recovery time for a hysterectomy performed through Da Vinci Robotic System normally takes four to six weeks. Hysterectomies that are not performed through this minimally invasive surgery often take patients a bit longer recover. These minimally invasive surgeries are becoming more common. This puts Alexis Dominguez in a good position since he is specially trained in the area. Dominguez is happy to serve anyone that comes to him, especially because he works in the area that he grew up in.
