When a hysterectomy is recommended as treatment for gynecological cancer, fibroids, endometriosis or another uterine condition, women now have a revolutionary new procedure to consider. A da Vinci® robotic hysterectomy offers many improved robotic surgery benefits over traditional vaginal, open or conventional laparoscopic surgeries.
Robotic hysterectomy is a minimally invasive advanced laparoscopic surgery that employs state-of-the-art robot technology and magnified 3D vision. The da Vinci® robotic micro-instruments translate the precise movements of the surgeons’ hands while filtering out even the slightest tremors. High-definition scaled 3D imaging allows for optimum viewing and manipulation of sensitive nerves and tissues.
Of the over 600,000 hysterectomies performed in the U.S. every year, patients who choose a da Vinci® hysterectomy over traditional surgeries experience the following benefits:
- Shorter Hospital Stays
- Less Pain, Blood Loss and Scarring
- A Quicker Return to Regular Activities
- Fewer Infections and Other Post-Surgery Complications
