If you and your physician agree that a hysterectomy is needed, you may be a candidate for a less invasive surgical procedure called the da Vinci Hysterectomy. This procedure uses a surgical system designed to help your physician perform a more precise, minimally invasive procedure. For most women, the da Vinci Hysterectomy offers numerous potential benefits. The benefits may include:
- Less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less risk of infection
- Shorter hospital stay
- Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
- Small incisions for minimal scarring
- Better outcomes and patient satisfaction
How does the da Vinci Surgical System Work?
The da Vinci Surgical System is robotic technology. The system enhances surgical capabilities by enabling the performance of complex surgeries through tiny surgical openings. The system cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. The da Vinci Surgical System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from the surgeon.
