Dr. Turrentine also teaches minimally invasive procedures at J&J Endo Surgery in Cincinatti. His specialty is MIVH using no incisions or intra abdominal gas insufflation. It is the quickest mode of surgery and recovery of ALL the hysterectomy options. However, he also teaches both laparoscopic minimally invasive procedures and robotic surgeries. Turrentine uses the da Vinci Surgical System and teaches this procedure since its inception. The advantages of MIVH are the best, however, Turrentine says that the robotic surgery is the second best option if there is some reason that a patient can not undergo MIVH.
Advantages are less pain, quicker healing, and less blood loss. The advantage of robotic surgery can really be seen in precision surgery such as reattachment of fallopian tubes and other precision type surgical procedures. The robot affords magnified 3D visualization, increasing precision using the microinstruments, and improved access to the organs, tissues, and nerves.
Turrentine was one of the first gynecological surgeons in the country to use the robot and has taught the procedure to other physicians for several years since retiring from active private practice.
