Hysterectomy

Surgical Treatment Option

There are wide variety of non-cancerous conditions that can an affect a woman’s reproductive system.

Common conditions such as fibroids, endometriosis, adenomyosis, or pelvic prolapse can cause pain, heavy bleeding and other mild to severe symptoms. Women who experience severe symptoms related to these conditions are often treated by hysterectomy which is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus.

Hysterectomy using the da Vinci system requires only a few tiny incisions which allows patients to return to their regular routine without the usual recovery following major surgery. It also enables surgeons to perform this delicate operation with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

Benefits over traditional open surgery include:
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Minimal scarring
Benefits over traditional laparoscopy surgery include:
  • Less blood loss
  • Lower conversion rate to open surgery
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Less need for narcotic pain medication
