da Vinci® Gynecologic Procedures

Some gynecologic procedures enable surgeons to access the target anatomy using a vaginal approach, which may not require an external incision. But for complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robotic assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option available today. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci® System can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the liklihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.

Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy ( LSH )

Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy is one of a collection of advanced laparoscopic surgical procedures that are less invasive than open procedures. These procedures allow the surgeon to remove the uterus without the large incision required by traditional abdominal surgery. Patients usually experience less pain, minimal scarring and quickly return to normal activity.
