Robotic and Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Q&A
What is a hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove your uterus. At Beyond Women’s Care, practitioners share the belief that the most conservative treatment options should always be considered before moving forward with more extensive procedures.
Hysterectomy is rarely the first choice when it comes to treating gynecologic conditions. That said, there are cases in which surgically removing your uterus and other reproductive organs is the best way to preserve your overall health.
Some hysterectomy procedures remove only a portion of your uterus. Others remove the entire uterus as well as your cervix, and it’s even possible to remove additional gynecologic organs during the procedure.
A hysterectomy is a treatment option for the following conditions:
- Uterine fibroids
- Gynecologic cancer
- Uterine prolapse
- Abnormal bleeding
- Chronic pelvic pain
Your doctor will discuss all available options for treating your condition. You’ll always receive the details needed to make an informed decision about your care.
What is a robotic and laparoscopic hysterectomy?
Laparoscopic surgery is an approach that uses very small incisions and slim surgical tools to alter tissues within your body. This option enables your practitioner to perform procedures without displacing significant tissues.
Robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery is an advancement in laparoscopic procedures. At Beyond Women’s Care, the da Vinci® surgical system is used for robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery, bringing an unsurpassed level of research and technology to these procedures.
What happens during a robotic and laparoscopic hysterectomy?
When they hear of robotic surgery, many people are fearful of having a machine perform their procedure. It’s important to understand that the da Vinci robotic surgical platform is completely controlled by your doctor, not the machine.
The robotic aspect comes into play as your doctor controls the surgical tools. The portion of the system that enters your body can be moved in almost limitless ways, achieving a degree of flexibility and dexterity unmatched by the human hand.
Surgical movements are smooth and precisely controlled. The system also delivers high-definition 3D imaging, enabling your practitioner to “view” your internal tissues throughout the procedure, with magnification reaching as high as 10 times what is possible with the human eye.
