At GAMC, surgeons are using the da Vinci® Surgical System to perform a range of uterine procedures, including hysterectomy. One of the most effective, least invasive procedures for hysterectomy, da Vinci® hysterectomy can be performed using only a few
tiny (1-2 cm) incisions.
Benefits and Risks
For most patients, da Vinci® hysterectomy can offer
numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to
vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal hysterectomy,
particularly when performing more challenging procedures like
radical hysterectomy for gynecologic cancer.
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Less scarring
- A shorter hospital stay
- A faster return to normal daily activities
As with any surgery, there are certain risks associated with da
Vinci® hysterectomy. Be sure to ask your doctor about all your treatment options, including their risks and benefits.
If you are a candidate for hysterectomy, talk to a gynecologist
or gynecologic oncologist (a cancer specialist) who performs da
Vinci® hysterectomy. For help finding a physician,
call (818) 409-8100.
