Da Vinci Robotic Surgery for Gynecologic Malignancies and difficult gynecologic procedures


da Vinci Hysterectomy When medication and other treatments are unable to relieve symptoms, hysterectomy is often recommended to provide a more effective, definitive and long-term solution for excessive menstrual bleeding. If you are considering or your doctor has recommended a hysterectomy, you are not alone - one in three women in the U.S. will have a hysterectomy before turning 60. da Vinci Hysterectomy offers numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches, 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



This procedure is performed using the da Vinci Surgical System, a breakthrough surgical platform which enables gynecologists to operate with unmatched precision, dexterity and control. By overcoming the limitations of both traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci is revolutionizing gynecologic surgery for women. Read about how da Vinci Surgery enables gynecologists to perform the most precise, minimally invasive hysterectomy available today - da Vinci Hysterectomy.
