One in three women in the U.S. will have a hysterectomy before she turns 60. While no woman wants to face surgery, today the vast majority of gynecologic conditions – from endometriosis to uterine fibroids, heavy menstrual bleeding to cancer – can now be treated effectively without a big incision. With da Vinci Surgery, a hysterectomy requires only a few small incisions so recovery is significantly less than the usual weeks required with traditional surgery.
da Vinci Surgery enables gynecologists to perform the most precise, minimally invasive hysterectomy available today. For most women, da Vinci Hysterectomy offers numerous potential benefits over traditional open surgery, including:
Significantly less pain
- Minimal blood loss and need for transfusion
- Fewer complications
- Shorter hospital stay
- Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
- Small incisions for minimal scarring
- Better outcomes and patient satisfaction, in many cases
Surpassing the limits of conventional laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci is revolutionizing gynecologic surgery for women. No wonder more and more women are choosing da Vinci Surgery for their hysterectomy. In fact, since it was cleared by the FDA in 2005, surgeons have performed more than 100,000 da Vinci Hysterectomies.
Dr. Nathan Mordel is routinely performing the following procedures using the da Vinci Surgical System: robotically-assisted laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy, robotically-assisted total laparoscopic hysterectomy, robotically-assisted laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy, and robotically-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy.
