Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision, has for many years been the standard approach to many gynecologic problems. 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, robotic-assisted surgery may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, our surgeons 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.
Changing the Experience of Hysterectomy at the UVM Medical Center
Here at The University of Vermont Medical Center, robotic-assisted surgery provides our surgeons with an alternative to traditional hysterectomies via open surgery or conventional laparoscopy.
The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.
Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Hysterectomy
For many patients, benefits of minimally invasive hysterectomy surgery as an alternative to open abdominal hysterectomy may include:
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Shorter recovery time
- A faster return to normal daily activities
- And in many cases, better clinical outcomes
