Dr. Sid Stuart, a Board Certified Obstetrics and Gynecology physician, has been practicing at The Women’s Group in Pensacola, Florida since 2001.
Dr. Stuart’s professional interests include low and high risk obstetrics, office gynecology including menopausal management, prevention of osteoporosis, infertility and urinary incontinence, minimally invasive surgery for stress urinary incontinence, and all aspects of gynecologic surgery including laparoscopic and vaginal surgery.
Dr. Stuart performs surgeries using the daVinci Surgical System, a device that allows the physician to perform robotically assisted minimally invasive laparoscopic total hysterectomies through small incisions. This means a shorter hospital stay and recovery time and less pain and discomfort for the patient as compared to a traditional abdominal hysterectomy. Dr. Stuart performed the first robotically assisted hysterectomy at Sacred Heart and helped train the OR team to perform these surgeries. He is also a proctor for Intuitive Surgical, the manufacturer of the daVinci System, training other physicians to use the System. The daVinci System is available at Baptist, Sacred Heart and West Florida Hospitals and Dr. Stuart is on staff at each of these hospitals.
