Hysterectomy

If your University Hospitals doctor recommends hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for da Vinci Hysterectomy, one of the most effective, least invasive treatment options for a range of uterine conditions. da Vinci Hysterectomy is performed using the da Vinci® Surgical System, which enables University Hospitals MacDonald Women’s Hospital's surgeons to perform with unmatched precision and control – using only a few small incisions.

Potential benefits for you may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • And in many cases, better clinical outcomes

da Vinci Hysterectomy offers numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal hysterectomy, particularly when performing more challenging procedures like radical hysterectomy for gynecologic cancer.

da Vinci allows surgeons a better visualization of anatomy, which is especially critical working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder. This means that surgeons have an advantage when performing a complex, radical hysterectomy involving adhesions from prior pelvic surgery, non-localized cancer or an abdominal hysterectomy.
