da Vinci® Hysterectomy
Many women suffer from gynecologic conditions that may require a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus). Today, women facing a hysterectomy have a state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgical option – da Vinci Hysterectomy.
Why da Vinci Surgery?
With the da Vinci System, surgeons operate through a few small incisions instead of a large open incision - similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
da Vinci uses the latest in surgical and robotic technologies and is beneficial for performing complex and delicate surgery. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. da Vinci – taking surgery beyond the limits of the human hand.
