Richard J. Cardosi, MD, FACOG, FACS, is a board-certified gynecologic oncologist with Watson Clinic in Lakeland, Florida. He was the first gynecologic oncologist in the area to utilize the da Vinci robotic system for hysterectomies and advanced gynecologic cancer surgeries.

The da Vinci robotic system is designed to perform hysterectomies and other advanced gynecologic surgical procedures in a minimally invasive manner, resulting in a faster healing time, less discomfort and scarring, and a quicker recovery to normal activity.

During the procedure, a robot with mechanical arms is positioned by the patients bedside. Surgical tools are attached to the arms and inserted through very small incisions in a woman's abdomen. The surgeon remains in complete control of the procedure every step of the way. Dr. Cardosi directs the robotic arms with specialized hand controls while sitting at a console from which he views the operating field in 3-D.

For more information or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Cardosi, please call (863) 680-7578 or visit us online at www.WatsonClinic.com/cardosi.
