Aster Centre for Robotic Gynecology is a specialized department under Aster Centre of Excellence in Women’s Health. It combines robotic technology with gynecologic expertise to provide minimally invasive surgical options and comprehensive care for women's gynecologic conditions. It focuses on precision, patient-centered care, collaboration, research, and continuous improvement to deliver optimal outcomes and improve the quality of life for patients.
Robotic gynecology has indeed transformed the field of gynecologic surgery by offering patients improved outcomes, reduced invasiveness, and faster recovery times. It allows gynecologists to perform complex procedures with enhanced precision and minimal trauma, resulting in better patient experiences and outcomes.
Robotic gynecologic procedures are typically performed using minimally invasive techniques. Small incisions are made, through which robotic instruments and a high-definition camera are inserted. This approach reduces trauma to surrounding tissues, resulting in shorter hospital stays, reduced pain, minimal scarring, and faster recovery times for patients.
At Aster Centre for Robotic Gynecology, our robotic surgeon’s team specializes in wide range of robot assisted gynecologic surgeries including but not limited to:
- Robotic-assisted hysterectomy: Removal of the uterus, either partially or completely, for conditions such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis, or gynecologic cancers.
- Robotic myomectomy: Removal of uterine fibroids while preserving the uterus.
- Robotic-assisted ovarian cystectomy: Surgical removal of ovarian cysts.
- Robotic-assisted pelvic organ prolapse repair: Surgical repair of pelvic floor disorders, such as uterine prolapse or bladder prolapse.
- Robotic-assisted endometriosis surgery: Excision or removal of endometrial tissue outside the uterus.
- Robotic-assisted reproductive surgeries: Procedures such as tubal re-anastomosis or ovarian cystectomy for fertility preservation.
The Centre for Robotic Gynecology adopts a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. It collaborates with other specialists, such as urogynecologists, colorectal surgeons, radiologists, and pathologists, to ensure comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment planning for each patient. This interdisciplinary collaboration ensures holistic and personalized care. Our robotic surgeons actively engage in research and innovation to advance the field. This includes participating in clinical trials, contributing to scientific publications, and adopting new techniques or technologies to enhance surgical outcomes and patient care.
We have some of the best specialists from around the world, they bring years of experience and offer evidence-based treatment to ensure the best care for you.

How does robotic gynecology surgery work?
Robotic gynecology surgery utilizes a robotic surgical system consisting of robotic arms equipped with specialized surgical instruments. The surgeon controls the robot from a console, where they can view a high-definition, 3D images of the surgical site. The surgeon's hand movements are translated into precise movements of the robotic arms, allowing for improved dexterity and maneuverability during the procedure.
What types of gynecologic surgeries can be performed using robotic technology?
Robotic technology can be used for various gynecologic surgeries, including:
- Hysterectomy: Robotic-assisted hysterectomy involves the removal of the uterus and can be performed for various conditions, such as fibroids, endometriosis, or certain cancers.
- Myomectomy: Robotic-assisted myomectomy is the surgical removal of uterine fibroids while preserving the uterus, allowing for fertility preservation in some cases.
- Ovarian cystectomy: Robotic technology can be used for the removal of ovarian cysts or tumors while preserving the ovary.
- Endometriosis surgery: Robotic surgery can be employed for the excision or removal of endometriosis lesions and scar tissue.
- Pelvic floor reconstruction: Robotic-assisted procedures can be performed to address pelvic organ prolapse or urinary incontinence.
