If you and your physician agree that a hysterectomy is needed, you may be a candidate for a robotic assisted hysterectomy. This procedure uses a surgical system designed to help your physician perform a more precise, minimally invasive procedure. 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 Robotic Technology Work?
The robotic assisted hysterectomy 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 technology requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from the surgeon.
