We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
The same great care, with a less-invasive approach
Undergoing surgery can be tough on anyone, and our goal at West Boca Medical Center is to make the entire process easier for you. This led us to establish the Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Care program. Through this program, a surgeon is able to use
robotic hands to assist with the procedure, designed to result in greater dexterity, precision and accuracy. The robotic hands can perform surgical tasks beyond the capabilities of humans by using just a few small incisions to access the surgical
site. This advanced surgical procedure can benefit the patient greatly.
The technology is designed for surgeries to have smaller incisions, generally resulting in less bleeding and pain and a reduced risk of infection. Most patients also experience shorter hospital stays and faster recovery.
West Boca Medical Center surgeons use the advanced da Vinci® SI™ HD Surgical System.
Patients who need gynecologic, urogynecologic and certain general surgeries are excellent candidates for robot-assisted surgery. We also offer our patients SILS, single-incision laparoscopic surgery.
Some examples of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery include:
Hysterectomy for benign conditions
Hysterectomy for early stages of gynecologic cancer
Myomectomy to remove uterine fibroids
Sacrocolpopexy to correct vaginal/uterine prolapse
Potential patient benefits may include:
Less Need for Pain Medication
Less Blood Loss and Fewer Transfusions
Shorter Hospital Stay
Quicker Recovery and Fast Return to Normal Daily Activities
Better Clinical Outcomes and Patient Satisfaction (in many cases as compared to open surgery)
