What is Infertility?
Infertility is a disease that affects the ability to conceive a child due to a malfunction of the reproductive system. It can afflict both women and men. Approximately 12% of the population experiences infertility.
In women under the age of 35, infertility is defined as the lack of ability to conceive after unprotected sex, or the inability to carry a pregnancy to 40 weeks, after a period of greater than one year (12 months). For women over 35, infertility is diagnosed after six months.

da Vinci Robotic Surgery
Certain conditions such as endometriosis, hormone imbalances, abnormal bleeding, and other gynecological conditions can interfere with fertility. The da Vinci robotic surgery method can be used to treat these conditions. It is an innovative, minimally invasive platform that allows gynecologic surgeons like Dr. Anyaegbunam to operate with precision.
Dr. Anyaegbunam also uses this high-tech procedure to perform robotic tubal re-anastomoses (tubal reversal).
The da Vinci procedure reduces hospitalization and recovery time while leaving only minimal scarring from tiny incisions. Complications after surgery are drastically reduced with this revolutionary method that utilizes 3D images, allowing the surgeon to guide the robotic system. The pinpoint accuracy of da Vinci robotic surgery allows for improved patient outcomes and drastically reduced pain.
