Watch: Robotic Surgery Helps Woman With Dream of Motherhood


Miracles come in small packages thanks to physician-guided da Vinci Robotic Surgery. This video, originally shot in 2014, details the journey of Courtney Russell, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2011. Today, she and her husband are expecting their second child, a girl, in August.

When Courtney Russell had trouble conceiving in 2011, she never imagined what would happen next. After discovering she had a cyst on one of her ovaries and elevated cancer markers, Russell underwent surgery with Peter Lim, MD, FACOG, medical director of Renown Institute for Robotic Surgery.

During surgery, they found something more serious than a cyst. It became quite possible that Russell would never be able to conceive a child.

But through the expertise of Dr. Lim and minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery, Russell has quite a miracle to share.
