Westchester Health’s Dr. Navid Mootabar is happy to announce Single Site Robotic Surgery.

I wanted to let everyone know about an exciting new surgery I am performing at Northern Westchester Hospital. Through one small incision in the belly button, of about an inch, I can remove a women's fibroid, uterus, ovaries or complex ovarian cyst. I can hide the scar in the belly button leaving the surgery virtually scar free. Besides the cosmetic benefit of the surgery, the single incision results in decreased pain after surgery and quicker return to work or one's daily activity. For ovaries and cysts women go home the same day. For a hysterectomy, they spend one night in the hospital. Women no longer need the one large incision we use to do with an open procedure or even the 3 or 4 small incisions we do with laparoscopic or traditional robotic approach.

Northern Westchester Hospital is one of only 2 hospitals in the region to offer Single Site Robotic Surgery. If you have any women who are interested in removing a fibroid, need a hysterectomy, have complex ovarian cysts or require removal of their ovaries, please let them know of this approach. I would gladly meet with them to discuss if they are a candidate.
