Congratulations to Robin Wilson-Smith, DO, FACOG, FACOOG, Attending Physician in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at the MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper on having recently performed her 500th surgery using the da Vinci® Robotic Surgery System. Dr. Wilson-Smith is currently the #1 ranked robotic surgeon among gynecologic surgeons in the Central/Southern New Jersey area.

The da Vinci® Surgical System allows surgeons to operate through just a few small incisions. The da Vinci® system features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny-wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand. As a result, da Vinci® enables Cooper surgeons to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control. In addition to a quicker recovery time for patients, other potential benefits of robotic surgery include less blood loss, reduced post-operative pain, faster and easier recovery, less scarring, and quicker return to daily activities.

Robotic-assisted surgery is being used at Cooper University Health Care to treat a number of gynecologic, urologic, thoracic and other concerns. This accomplishment demonstrates Dr. Wilson-Smith’s advanced level of expertise with this state-of-the-art technology.
