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 time.
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 Sacrocolpopexy.
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.
