da Vinci® Hysterectomy

Types of Hysterectomy

There are various types of hysterectomy that are performed depending on the patient's diagnosis and may involve the uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes, ovaries and/or lymph nodes.

Traditional open gynecologic surgery—using a large incision to access the uterus and surrounding anatomy—has been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures.

For complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny incisions, surgeons can operate with great precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk often associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.

Potential benefits include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
