Changing the Experience of Surgery When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. For generations, open surgery has been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures and is still used today. With the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System, Dr. Van Riper operates through just a few small incisions. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D highdefinition vision system and tiny-wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables Dr. Van Riper to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
Dr. Van Riper has extensive experience using the da Vinci Surgical System. He is your trusted expert for minimally invasive surgery with a faster recovery time.
