Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery T: +961-1-502210

Your Doctor may recommend surgery if you have been diagnosed with fibroid tumors, endometriosis, excessive menstrual bleeding, pelvic prolapse or cancer.

Gynecologic surgery is often performed using either traditional open surgery or minimally invasive surgery.

Dr El Hachem has received advanced fellowship training in minimally invasive and robotic surgery in New York.

The most common minimally invasive surgery is laparoscopy

Instead of a large open incision, surgery is done through a few small incisions using a tiny camera and long, thin surgical instruments. The camera takes images inside your body and those images are sent to a video monitor which guides surgeons as they operate.

da Vinci® Multi-Site Robotic Surgery - If you are considering gynecologic surgery, ask Dr El Hachem about minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery. 


da Vinci surgeons make just a few small incisions instead of a large incision - similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da VinciSystem features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

Open surgery, also called laparotomy, is any surgical procedure in which a large cut/incision is made to reach your organs. The incision must be large enough for your surgeon to fit his or her hands and surgical instruments inside your body.

With gynecologic surgery, the incision can be horizontal or vertical. Many women are familiar with the horizontal incision (also called a "bikini" incision) since it is commonly used for a C-section. Open surgery is used worldwide for many gynecologic conditions. However, there are some drawbacks due to the large abdominal incision and noticeable scarring.
The state-of-the-art da Vinci system uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies and is beneficial for performing complex surgery. 

Dr El Hachem has been performing robotic procedures since 2011. She has completed hysterectomy and adnexal cases for benign and malignant cases. 

When performing da Vinci surgery your doctor is 100% in control of theda Vinci System, which translates her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. 

The newest da Vinci system is the da Vinci Xi
