If the cause for your infertility is a structural or medical condition, you may be a candidate for surgery. Dr. Armando Hernandez-Rey is the only reproductive endocrinologist doing da Vinci® robotic surgery in Miami. He performs tubal reconstructive procedures and treats severe cases of endometriosis and uterine fibroids, which can interfere with pregnancy. He also offers in-office hysteroscopy, a minimally invasive surgical technique that allows us to examine and perform procedures in the uterus.
Surgery may be a treatment option if you have infertility caused by a blocked passageway, such as a fallopian tube blockage or deformity in the uterus or vas deferens (in males). Some people are born with a condition that prevents normal transport of eggs or sperm for reproduction, and other problems may be the result of a medical condition or treatment. After your initial evaluation and testing, Dr. Hernandez-Rey will determine if surgery is the best option for you.
Robotic surgery is minimally invasive, which has the following benefits:
- Tiny incisions and minimal scarring
- Faster recovery
- Less bleeding and fewer complications than traditional surgery
- Higher accuracy and precision with a robot
- Less pain
The robot is equipped with tiny, high-precision surgical tools, lights, and a high-definition 3D camera that Dr. Hernandez-Rey controls using a computer throughout the entire surgery. He can view a magnified 3D image of the surgery on the computer screen. The technology is quite amazing and it performs complex surgeries like tubal ligation reversal, myomectomy (fibroid removal), and other microscopic surgery more precisely than a surgeon could ever perform by hand.
