Dr. Peter O'Hare III with the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System
Less blood loss, less pain after the procedure, a shorter hospital stay and the ability to recover and return to normal, daily activities, quicker than you’d ever think possible are the many benefits of robotic surgery.
If and when you need to undergo surgery to correct a pelvic floor disorder, MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center has invested in one of the most innovative, state-of-the-art surgical technologies available on the market today: the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System, and a top-of-the-line surgeon trained to use it.
Robotic technology allows our urogynecology team to operate with extreme precision. Areas of a woman’s body that may difficult or even impossible to reach with the human hand are now accessible with use of the robotic system; its “arms” can rotate up to 280 degrees.
Our goal is to help women who suffer from these conditions resolve their medical issues so they can resume normal, daily life activities, without pain, discomfort, or the potential for embarrassment.

Patient Perspective - Robotic Surgery for Pelvic Prolapse
Meet Joanne Tressler; she finally experienced relief after seeing Dr. Peter O’Hare, who correctly diagnosed and treated her pelvic prolapse. “He told me that I had pelvic prolapse—that my pelvic organs weren’t being supported. He also found that my uterus was blocking my bladder,” she says. “If it was moved out of the way, I leaked urine.”
