Cystopexy with mesh and colposuspension (combined with vaginal hysterectomy if necessary)
Surgery for genital prolapse (drooping of the bladder, uterus and rectum or some of these organs). This is a surgical procedure performed vaginally to anatomically reposition the drooped organs. It consists of reducing the cystocele (lowering of the bladder) with an appropriately shaped polypropylene mesh (prosthetic material), eventual removal of the uterus and suspension and fixation of the vaginal fundus. It allows an excellent anatomical vaginal reconstruction; the surgical time can vary from 60 to 120 minutes, with a post-operative stay of 3-4 days.
TOT (Trans Obturator Tape)
Intervention for the treatment of Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). It is a minimally invasive operation that is has a 85-90% success rate. It is performed vaginally and consists of placing a “tape” (sling made of synthetic material) under the middle urethra, which, modulated to the right pressure, prevents leakage of urine under stress. The surgical time takes 30-60 minutes and the post-operative stay is one day.
Cysto Hydrodistention in narcosis with bladder biopsies
Method implemented in cases of chronic pelvic pain (Bladder Pain Syndrome) or Interstitial Cystitis. Endoscopic procedure (cystoscopy) under anaesthesia, which consists of over-inflating the bladder to highlight the appearance of characteristic signs and to perform bladder biopsies aimed at clarifying and grading the inflammation. The operating time is about 45 minutes and the post-operative stay is one day.
Paideia International Hospital’s robotic surgery represents the very latest development in minimally invasive surgery. We are not referring to surgery performed by a robot, but a minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery performed and directed by experienced surgeons. The da Vinci Xi Robot gives the surgical gesture a precision that cannot be compared with other techniques. By extending the use of the robot to complex operations — with the same quality and effectiveness as traditional surgery — the benefits of minimally invasive surgery are:
Robot-assisted surgery can be applied in the following cases:
Laparotomy surgery involves opening the abdominal wall; surgery is performed using the traditional, so-called “open” technique.
