Physicians are usually successful at treating a variety of gynecologic
conditions—particularly those affecting the uterus—with surgery. In
spite of growing demand for minimally invasive procedures, the majority
of these operations are still performed using large, abdominal
incisions. These surgeries typically result in significant blood loss,
and may mean several days in the hospital followed by weeks of recovery
Today, a less invasive surgical treatment option is available. If your
doctor recommends surgery for your condition, you may be a candidate for
one of three new, minimally invasive procedures—da Vinci®
Hysterectomy, da Vinci Myomectomy and da Vinci
These procedures use the state-of-the-art da Vinci Surgical
System, designed to help your surgeon perform a more precise, less
invasive procedure. For most patients, minimally invasive procedures
performed with the da Vinci Surgical System can offer numerous
potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:
Shorter hospital stay
Less pain and scarring
Less risk of infection
Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
Quicker return to normal activities.
In addition, for women diagnosed with uterine fibroids, da Vinci
Myomectomy represents a minimally invasive surgical treatment designed
to preserve the uterus.
