At Saint Vincent Hospital, da Vinci Robotic Surgery provides our gynecology patients with an effective, minimally invasive alternative to both open surgery and laparoscopy. Through the use of the da Vinci system, our skilled surgeons offer minimally invasive options for hysterectomies and removal of uterine fibroids.
Benefits of da Vinci Surgery
If you need a hysterectomy or a myectomy to remove uterine fibroids, da Vinci Robotic Surgery can help minimize the pain and risk associated with surgery, shorten your recovery time, and ensure better results. The da Vinci® Surgical System allows our surgeons to operate using only 1-2 cm incisions, but with greater precision and control than ever before.
For most patients, da Vinci Robotic Assisted Surgery offers numerous benefits over open surgery, including:
- A faster recovery
- A shorter hospital stay
- A less-invasive procedure
- Smaller incisions
- Less pain, scarring and blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Greater surgical precision, which in turn means more accurate removal of fibroids and cancer
When medication and other treatments cannot relieve your symptoms, hysterectomy is often recommended as a more effective long-term solution for several conditions. If 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. A da Vinci Hysterectomy offers several potential benefits over traditional open surgery, including less pain and blood loss, fewer complications, a shorter hospital stay and smaller incisions.
With the assistance of the da Vinci Surgical System, our surgeons can remove uterine fibroids through small incisions with unmatched precision and control. Your surgeon can perform a minimally invasive, yet remarkably precise, comprehensive reconstruction of the uterine wall, regardless of the size or location of your fibroids. The unique level of control and precision of da Vinci also can help your surgeon provide the most precise and thorough reconstruction possible, which helps prevent a possible uterine rupture (tearing) during any future pregnancies. In addition to the typical benefits, a da Vinci myomectomy improves your chances of becoming pregnant afterward.
