If your doctor recommends a hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery, one of the most effective, least invasive treatment options for a range of uterine conditions. Using da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery, your surgeon can operate with unmatched precision and control – using only a few small incisions. Traditional surgery methods typically require a large incision.
For most patients, da Vinci Hysterectomy can offer numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal hysterectomy, particularly when performing more challenging procedures like radical hysterectomy for gynecologic cancer.
Potential benefits include:
As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient and procedure-specific. While radical hysterectomy or abdominal hysterectomy performed using the da Vinci Surgical System are considered safe and effective, these procedures may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
