Less Invasive Hysterectomy with the da Vinci® Robotic System
A woman undergoes a hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus) for a variety of reasons including heavy bleeding, fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic prolapse and early stage gynecologic cancer. When medication and lifestyle changes are no longer relieving your symptoms, you might find success with a hysterectomy.
If your doctor has recommended a hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for a da Vinci Hysterectomy.
A traditional hysterectomy requires a large incision and a month-long recovery. Laparoscopic hysterectomies are available, but the delicate procedure can be challenging with the surgical tools required for the procedure. The da Vinci hysterectomy allows surgeons to perform the most complex hysterectomies with exceptional precision and control, offering patients many benefits over traditional and laparoscopic surgeries, including:
- fewer complications
- less blood loss
- shorter hospital stay
- faster return to activity
