Date:5/23/2013

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif., May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Saddleback Memorial Medical Center in Laguna Hills, CA recently became the first hospital on the West Coast to perform a hysterectomy using single site robotic technology. This new surgical option provides women with a state-of-the-art, minimally invasive approach to gynecological surgery.

Marc Winter , M.D., a highly regarded Orange County gynecologist and surgeon and medical director of minimally invasive surgery at Saddleback Memorial, led the surgical team that performed the hysterectomy.  The single site technology allows the procedure to be performed using a single incision virtually hidden in the patient's navel. 

With robotic surgery, patients typically have less bleeding and less pain, fast recovery and a shorter hospital stay than with conventional laparoscopic surgeries and operations involving larger incisions.

"With the addition of single site surgery, Saddleback Memorial continues to lead in the evolution of surgical technologies," says Dr. Winter. "We're thrilled to offer our patients the most technically advanced surgical options available to address women's health issues."

"This is yet another breakthrough in leading-edge choices in women's care available here," says Steve Geidt , CEO for Saddleback Memorial. "Having the opportunity to treat our patients using this state-of-the-art technology is another example of how we continue to carry our mission forward: to improve the health and well being of individuals, families and our communities through innovation and the pursuit of excellence."

In 2012, Saddleback Memorial became the only robotic surgery epicenter for gynecology in Orange and Los Angeles counties, and is one of only 22 such centers in
