Da Vinci Robotic Surgery

If your doctor recommends hysterectomy, you may be a candidate da Vinci Robotic surgery, a new, less invasive surgical procedure.

This procedure uses a state-of-the-art surgical system designed to help the surgeon perform a more precise, minimally invasive procedure. For most women, da Vinci Hysterectomy offers numerous potential benefits over traditional surgical approaches including:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to normal activities
  • Less risk of wound infection
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is patient and procedure specific.

The da Vinci Surgical System is powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology. The System allows your surgeon’s hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of micro-instruments within the operative site. The da Vinci System enhances surgical capabilities by enabling the performance of complex surgeries through tiny surgical openings. The System cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. The da Vinci System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon.

The da Vinci Surgical System has been successfully used in tens of thousands of minimally invasive procedures worldwide.
