DaVinci Robotic Advanced Laparoscopy
Dr. Karon was the first gynecologist in Kentucky to apply robotic technology of DaVinci system to her field of OB/GYN. This includes difficult hysterectomies, advanced endometriosis laparoscopies, myomectomies (fibroid removal from uterus) of even large fibroids. The DaVinci robot can also be used for outpatient tubal reanastomosis with which Dr. Karon has had 90% success rate. Dr. Karon’s special interest in last few years has become pelvic floor prolapse and incontinence surgery which has become out patient procedure due to the precision and visualization with the robot.

In past 5 years alone, Dr. Karon has done over 2000 cases with da Vinci. Her operative time has shortened due to her experience.
