Your doctor might have recommended a hysterectomy to treat your condition.  Traditionally, abdominal hysteectomies are performed with open surger, which requires a wide incision below the navel.  However, you may be a candidate for an innovative, less, invasive surgical procedure called da Vinci Hysterectomy.

The da Vinci Hysterectomy uses a state-of-the-art surgical system designed to help your doctor perform the most precise and least invasive hysterectomy available today.  For most women, da Vinci Hysterectomy offers numerous potential benefits over traditional surgical approaches, including:

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

The da Vinci surgical system is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view.  Your doctor controls the da Vinci system, which allows his or her movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside of your body.  This technology allows your doctor to perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings.
