Hysterectomy

If your doctor recommends hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for a new, less invasive surgical procedure called da Vinci Hysterectomy. This procedure uses a state-of-the-art surgical system designed to help your surgeon perform a more precise, minimally invasive procedure.

The procedure he is performed is a new, minimally invasive approach to hysterectomy, which combines the advantages of conventional open and minimally invasive hysterectomies – but with potentially fewer drawbacks. da Vinci Hysterectomy is becoming the treatment of choice for many surgeons worldwide, as it uses only a few small incisions. It is performed using the da Vinci System, which enables surgeons to perform surgical procedures with unmatched precision, dexterity and control.

da Vinci Hysterectomy offers numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal hysterectomy, particularly when performing more challenging procedures like radical hysterectomy for gynecologic cancer. Potential benefits include: Significantly less pain, less blood loss, fewer complications, less scarring, shorter hospital stay and a faster return to normal daily activities.

In some cases, surgeons may be able to offer a uterine-preserving procedure as an alternative to hysterectomy. These include myomectomy or sacrocolpopexy, which can also be performed using the da Vinci Surgical System in a minimally invasive approach.

For most women, da Vinci Surgery offers numerous potential benefits over traditional surgical approaches, including:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to normal activities
  • Less risk of wound infection
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
