    About the da Vinci Hysterectomy
     
    When medication and other treatments cannot relieve your symptoms, a 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.
     
    The 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
    This procedure is performed using the da Vinci Surgical System at Imperial Point Medical Center. It is a breakthrough surgical platform that enables gynecologists to operate with unmatched precision, vision and control. By overcoming the limitations of both traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci is revolutionizing gynecologic surgery for women.
