Faster Recovery with Robotic Gynecologic Surgery Options
One in three U.S. women will have a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) before the age of 60. Hysterectomies are the second most common operation for U.S. women and are often recommended to treat conditions such as:
- Certain gynecologic cancers
- Fibroid tumors
- Heavy uterine bleeding
- Severe endometriosis
Now with robotic surgery at University Hospitals Parma Medical Center, hysterectomy patients experience an easier and faster recovery than the traditional six week recovery time.
The da Vinci® Surgical System provides precise treatment for gynecologic conditions in a minimally invasive approach – through tiny incisions instead of a long open incision. The benefits for patients with a less invasive da Vinci approach include:
- Better clinical outcomes
- Reduced blood loss
- Shorter hospital stay and faster recovery
- Significantly less pain
- Tiny incisions for minimal scarring
The daVinci approach to minimally invasive surgery makes it an ideal option for women needing procedures such as hysterectomies and myomectomies, or the surgical removal of fibroid tumors that keeps the uterus intact for women who still want the option of future pregnancies.
