da Vinci® Surgical
System - Hysterectomy
When medication and other treatments cannot relieve your symptoms, hysterectomy is often recommended. It can provide a more effective, definitive and long-term solution for conditions like excessive menstrual bleeding. If you are considering or your doctor has recommended a hysterectomy, you are not alone. One in three women in the United States will have a hysterectomy before turning 60. da Vinci Hysterectomy offers several potential benefits over traditional approaches, including:
- Significantly less pain
- Minimal blood loss and need for transfusion
- Fewer complications
- Fewer complications
- Shorter hospital stay
- Small incisions for minimal scarring
- Better outcomes and patient satisfaction, in many cases
This procedure is performed using the da Vinci Surgical System . It is a breakthrough surgical platform that enables gynecologists to operate with unmatched precision, vision and control. By overcoming the limitations of both traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci is revolutionizing gynecologic surgery for women. Read about how da Vinci Surgery enables gynecologists to perform the most precise, minimally invasive hysterectomy available today - da Vinci Hysterectomy.
As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is unique to each patient and procedure.
