da Vinci Hysterectomy Surgery

When medication and other treatments cannot relieve your symptoms, hysterectomy is often recommended. It can provide a more effective, definitive and long-term solution for conditions like excessive menstrual bleeding. If you are considering or your doctor has recommended a hysterectomy, you are not alone. One in three women in the United States will have a hysterectomy before turning 60.

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.

Andrew Beckwith, MD, Daniel Barraez-Masroua, MD, and Lauren Slater, MD, Gynecologists and Obstetricians with Berkshire OB-GYN and members of the BMC medical staff, use the da Vinci Surgical System for hysterectomy.
