Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. A hysterectomy may be done to treat gynecologic cancers, such as uterine cancer, endometrial cancer, or early stage ovarian cancer. A hysterectomy may be recommended for severe symptoms from benign (non-cancerous) gynecologic conditions, such as uterine fibroids or endometriosis. For these conditions, minimally invasive hysterectomy, including da Vinci robotic hysterectomy, may be treatment options.
Robot-assisted da Vinci Surgery
If your doctor recommends hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for minimally invasive surgical techniques. The most advanced minimally invasive surgery is a robot-assisted hysterectomy with the da Vinci Surgical System®.
In da Vinci surgery, your surgeon performs delicate, complex procedures with superior visualization, precision, dexterity and control. Because incisions of a robotic hysterectomy are smaller, many women are able to be mobile the next day, which can decrease their post-surgical risk for blood clots and infection, as well as shorten recovery time considerably.
Benefits of da Vinci Surgery
Robot-assisted hysterectomy offers significant potential benefits over traditional surgery:
- Less pain
- Fewer complications
- Less blood loss
- Shorter hospital stay
- Low risk of wound infection
- Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
The surgeon guides highly flexible instruments through tiny incisions. The instruments allow for greater range of the motion and more precise surgical movements. The da Vinci Surgical System provides greatly enhanced magnification and 3D view of the surgical site.
