One in three women in the U.S. will have a hysterectomy – the surgical removal of the uterus – before she turns 60. A traditional open hysterectomy requires a 6-12 inch incision, which can mean significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process and even pose a threat to surrounding organs and nerves. Fortunately, with the da Vinci® Surgical System, a hysterectomy requires only a few small incisions, so you can get back to life faster – within days rather than the usual weeks required with traditional surgery.

Why choose robot-assisted hysterectomy?
The da Vinci® hysterectomy incorporates the latest advancements in robotic-assisted technology and allows a surgeon greater visualization, enhanced dexterity, precision, control and superior ergonomics – enabling gynecologists to perform the most precise, minimally invasive hysterectomy available today.

Why choose da Vinci®?
Our gynecologists believe da Vinci®is one of the most effective alternative treatments for early stage cervical and uterine cancers.

Benefits can include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Minimal blood loss and need for transfusion
  • Fewer complications
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
  • Small incisions for minimal scarring
  • In many cases, better outcomes and patient satisfaction

As with any surgical procedure, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient- and procedure-specific.
