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
