A New Approach to an Age-Old Procedure

For years, a hysterectomy meant invasive surgery and weeks of painful recovery. Robotic hysterectomy with the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System has changed all that.

Hysterectomies, the second most common surgical procedure for women in the U.S., have traditionally involved open surgery with a wide incision below the navel. This painful procedure involves significant blood loss, risk of infection and heavy pain medications, and leaves in its wake a significant scar.

For most women, da Vinci Robotic Hysterectomy offers a less invasive approach with numerous potential benefits:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss and need for transfusion
  • Less risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
  • Small incisions for minimal scarring
  • Better outcomes and patient satisfaction, in many cases

The Hysterectomy Treatment of Choice

Four board-certified OB/GYN surgeons in the Presence Health network are trained to perform hysterectomies using the da Vinci Robotic System. da Vinci Hysterectomy, which is becoming the treatment of choice for many surgeons worldwide, combines the advantages of conventional open and minimally invasive hysterectomies, but with fewer drawbacks. The robotic system enables surgeons to perform surgical procedures with unmatched precision, dexterity and control—and in some cases a single incision site can be used.
