Hysterectomy procedureThe hysterectomy is the second most common surgical procedure in the United States, with over 600,000 performed every year. But you have a choice in how your hysterectomy is done, and that choice could make your recovery faster and less painful.

In a traditional hysterectomy, a surgeon makes an incision up to 12 inches long in your abdomen. This kind of “open” hysterectomy can mean more pain and a longer recovery time following your surgery.

Other methods include a vaginal hysterectomy in which the uterus is removed through the vagina, or a laparoscopic hysterectomy that uses small incisions in the abdomen and a miniaturized camera to guide the surgeon.

Another choice is a daVinci hysterectomy, one of the most effective and least invasive treatment options for a range of uterine conditions. This method is commonly called “robotic surgery” but that doesn’t mean a robot is performing the surgery.

The daVinci Surgical System uses 3-D high-definition vision and instruments that go beyond the limits of the human hand. This allows your surgeon to perform with unmatched precision and control using only a few small incisions. There are a number of benefits for you, including:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter stay in the hospital
  • A faster return to normal daily activities

It’s important that a surgeon is experienced with using the daVinci System, so look for someone who has performed many surgeries this way. The doctors of Northline Women’s Health Center have many years of experience in women’s surgical care using the daVinci System and can help you decide if a daVinci hysterectomy is right for you.
