da Vinci Hysterectomy
If your doctor recommends a hysterectomy, ask if you are a candidate for a robotic procedure. This procedure combines the best of traditional open and laparoscopic surgery (procedure using a video camera and thin instruments), ensuring a more comfortable experience and faster recovery time.
Using the assistance of the most advanced combination of surgical and robotics technology available, surgeons perform this delicate operation with unmatched precision and control, using only a few small incisions.
Benefits of the Procedure
The benefits of robotic procedure compared to traditional open abdominal surgery include:
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Less scarring
- A shorter hospital stay
- A faster return to normal daily activities
As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient- and procedure-specific. While hysterectomy performed using the da Vinci Surgical System is considered safe and effective, this procedure may not be appropriate for every individual.
Ask your doctor about the risks and benefits of all your treatment options.
