As a board-certified gynecologist in North Miami, Florida, Dr. Remberto Santos is specially trained in minimally invasive advanced laparoscopy and robotic surgery procedures that include:
There are several vaginal rejuvenation procedures that restore the function and appearance of the vaginal anatomy to a more youthful state.
Pelvic reconstruction is an option for treating pelvic floor disorders such as urinary incontinence, bowel problems, and pelvic organ prolapse in which the bladder drops from its normal position and pushes against the wall of the vagina. Dr. Santos has the expertise to diagnose and surgically treat pelvic issues.
Removing part of or the entire uterus may be recommended to treat cancer or uterine conditions that do not respond to other treatments. There are various surgical approaches to performing a hysterectomy including vaginal, abdominal, and laparoscopic methods. Dr. Santos will discuss appropriate options with you.
This refers to the surgical removal of uterine fibroids. Unlike a hysterectomy, the uterus is left intact and you retain your reproductive ability.
This involves the removal of one or both ovaries. It may be used to remove cancerous ovaries, large cysts or abscesses, and endometriosis. It can be performed in conjunction with surgery to remove the uterus or a fallopian tube.
Sling Procedures for Urinary Incontinence
New techniques allow for minimally invasive treatment for leaky bladders. Vaginal sling procedures are designed to help control stress urinary incontinence by using tissue from your body or a synthetic material to help close your urethra and bladder neck.
Invasive surgery requiring large incisions is no longer necessary for certain gynecological conditions. The da Vinci® Surgical System utilizes minimally invasive robot-assisted technology that provides surgeons unparalleled control of complex procedures. It results in less trauma, little if any scarring, and shorter, faster recovery periods for patients.
