When medication and other treatments are unable to relieve symptoms, hysterectomy is often recommended to provide a more effective, definitive and long-term solution for excessive menstrual bleeding. If you are considering or your doctor has recommended a hysterectomy, you are not alone – one in three women in the U.S. will have a hysterectomy before turning 60.
A minimally invasive approach to hysterectomy, da Vinci hysterectomy, combines the advantages of conventional open and minimally invasive hysterectomies – but with potentially fewer drawbacks.
For patients, the benefits of da Vinci hysterectomy may include:
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Less risk of infection
- Less scarring due to small incisions
- Shorter recovery time
- A faster return to normal daily activities
- And in many cases, better clinical outcomes
It is performed using the da Vinci Surgical System, which enables surgeons to perform surgical procedures with unmatched precision, dexterity and control.
The da Vinci Surgical System
Imagine major surgery being performed through the smallest of incisions. Then, imagine having the benefits of a definitive treatment – but with the potential for significantly less pain, a shorter hospital stay and a faster return to normal daily activities – as well as the potential for better clinical outcomes.
Only the da Vinci® Surgical System overcomes the limitations of both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopic surgery. da Vinci is a breakthrough surgical platform designed to expand a surgeon’s capabilities – and for the first time – offer patients a minimally invasive treatment option for complex conditions.
