Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has for many years been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures. Yet with open surgery can come significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process and threat to surrounding organs and nerves.
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, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci System can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
Andrew Beckwith, MD, Robert Benner, MD, Herbert Kantor, MD, Cassandra Service, MD, and Lauren Slater, MD, Gynecologists and Obstetricians with Berkshire OB-GYN Associates and members of the BMC medical staff, provide gynecologic procedures using the da Vinci Surgical System.
da Vinci Hysterectomy Surgery
When medication and other treatments cannot relieve your symptoms, hysterectomy is often recommended. da Vinci Hysterectomy offers several 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
By overcoming the limitations of both traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci is revolutionizing gynecologic surgery for women.
