Hysterectomies are the second most common surgical procedure among women in the U.S. They involve the removal of the uterus and may include removal of one or both ovaries.
Depending on the condition of the patient, the procedure can be performed vaginally, abdominally or laparoscopically using the minimally invasive da Vinci Surgical System.
The da Vinci Surgical System uses small incisions and robotic technology that allows your doctor to have enhanced capabilities when performing your hysterectomy.
The advantages of using this system are:
- Small incisions
- Minimal blood loss
- A shorter hospital stay
- Minimal scarring
- A quicker return to daily activities
