GYN Oncology Robotic Hysterectomy

More than 25 percent of American women will eventually have a hysterectomy, making it the second most common surgery after cesarean section. Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) can cure a variety of problems to which the uterus and ovaries are prone – uterine or cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, fibroids, endometriosis, heavy non-menstrual bleeding, and uterine prolapse.

If your doctor recommends a hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for a robotic hysterectomy, one of the most effective, least invasive surgical treatment options for a range of uterine conditions. A robotic hysterectomy is performed using the da Vinci ® Robotic Surgical System, which enables surgeons to perform with unmatched precision and control – using only a few small incisions. This technology also allows your surgeon better visualization of anatomy, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder. This means that surgeons have a distinct advantage when performing a complex, radical hysterectomy involving adhesions from prior pelvic surgery or non-localized cancer, or an abdominal hysterectomy.
