From The Valley Hospital to Croatia:
Gynecologic Oncologists Perform Live Televised Surgery to Colleagues in Dubrovnik
In a live televised interactive exchange of information and education, two Valley Hospital gynecologic oncologists demonstrated their use of the robotic da Vinci® Surgical System to perform a robot-assisted hysterectomy before 400 gynecologists in Croatia.
The telesurgery, performed by William M. Burke, M.D., and Noah Goldman, M.D., co-directors of gynecology oncology at Valley, was broadcast to attendees of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists’ (AAGL) Fourth International Congress on Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery, held this year in Dubrovnik, Croatia. The AAGL is dedicated to the research and advancement of minimally invasive gynecologic procedures. The group numbers 4,000 members in more than 60 countries all over the world.
Drs. Burke and Goldman’s patient had suffered from chronic pelvic pain, an enlarged uterus, and irregular uterine bleeding. The two gynecologic oncologists used the da Vinci® system to remove the patient’s uterus through several small half-inch incisions on her abdomen rather than a traditional large abdominal incision. The patient spent just one night in the hospital.
“Through the use of telesurgery, we were able to share our expertise and knowledge with our peers in Croatia and other countries all over the world,” says Dr. Burke, an assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia University Medical Center. “It was an honor to have our surgery chosen for demonstration.”
At The Valley Hospital, Drs. Burke and Goldman use the da Vinci® robot for staging and treating early-stage cervical, endometrial (uterine), and ovarian cancers and for treating pelvic pain, large fibroids, endometriosis, and other gynecologic conditions. They perform about 200 robotic procedures each year.
