Advocate South Suburban Hospital is one of the hospitals in the south suburbs offering this state of the art technology. Dr. Anoina was one of the first guynesurgens using the daVinci robotic surgery system for gynecological procedures. Dr. Anoina helped pioneer the daVinci Robotic Gynecology Surgery Program at Advocate-South Suburban Hospital. She is one of the most experienced gyne robotic surgeons at her hospital and has successfully completed over 400 cases since March 2009. She now proctors new surgeons who are training and is continually updating her skills and knowledge by attending advanced training courses. The daVinci Robotic Surgery Program is used for a range of gynecologic conditions which include, but are not limited to hysterectomy, myomectomy, ovarian cysts, cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and menorrhagia or excessive bleeding. Unfortunately, not every woman is an ideal candidate for this type of surgery. A thorough gynecological exam and special imaging studies such as pelvic ultrasound, CT scans or MRI may be necessary to make that medical decision. Please call the Dr. Anoina’s office to make an appointment for your assessment if you are in need of surgery or you are having gynecologic issues that may require surgical intervention.
