Hysterectomy which is removal of the uterus, can cure a variety of problems that afflict the uterus and ovaries, including uterine or cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, endometriosis, fibroids, heavy non-menstrual bleeding and uterine prolapse.
Laparoscopic-robot assisted hysterectomy is one of the most effective, least invasive surgical treatment option that allows your surgeon to perform superior precision and control, with only a few small incisions.
Laparoscopic-robot assisted hysterectomy is a new minimally invasive technology that allows for incredibly precise movements, dexterity and control through minimally-invasive surgical openings and powerful 3D vision/magnification. It is widely being employed for hysterectomy surgery because it allows your surgeon to convert an “open incision” hysterectomy to one that results in only 3 or 4 small 8mm incisions.
Robotic surgery gives your surgeon better visualization and magnification in the operating field. This is vital, especially when working with delicate and confined structures like the bladder. Your surgeon has a distinct advantage when performing a total laparoscopic hysterectomy involving adhesions from prior pelvic surgery. Other benefits include shorter hospital stay with fewer post-hysterectomy surgery complications, less pain, blood loss & infection risk, less scarring because of the smaller incisions, and faster recovery period.
