About Robotic Hysterectomy
A hysterectomy is a definitive solution to many uterine conditions, including fibroids, endometriosis, heavy menstrual bleeding, uterine prolapse and certain cancers or pre-cancers. It is the most commonly performed gynecologic surgical procedure and results in the removal of the uterus and sometimes the cervix (a "complete hysterectomy").
Hysterectomies can be performed by open vaginal, minimally invasive surgery or robotic surgery. The different surgical techniques can result in dramatically different patient experiences and recoveries.
With our robotic surgery, you should experience reduced blood loss, fewer complications, a shorter hospital stay, a faster recovery and less scarring. The robotic hysterectomy is even less invasive than traditional minimally invasive procedures because the instruments used have more flexibility and a better range of motion. The robotic hysterectomy typically only takes a few small incisions versus a large incision for an open procedure. This is one element that results in a quicker recovery, less blood loss and less pain.
