If your doctor recommends hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for da Vinci Hysterectomy, an effective, minimaly invasive treatment option for uterine conditions. da Vinci Hysterectomy is performed using the da Vinci™ Surgical System, which enables our surgeons to perform with precision and control - using small incisions.
For most patients, da Vinci Hysterectomy can offer 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
A shorter hospital stay
A faster return to normal daily activities
Moreover, da Vinci provides our surgeons with a surgical tool for dissection and removal of lymph nodes during cancer operations, as compared to traditional open or minimally invasive approaches.1
da Vinci Hysterectomy also allows for better visualization of anatomy, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder.
As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient- and procedure-specific. While radical hysterectomy or abdominal hysterectomy performed using the da Vinci Surgical System are considered safe and effective, these procedures may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
If you are a candidate for hysterectomy, talk to a gynecologist or gynecologic oncologist (a cancer specialist) who performs da Vinci Hysterectomy.
