da Vinci® Hysterectomy (Benign) - (Removal of the uterus and possibly nearby organs)

In a benign (non-cancerous) condition, the doctor may suggest a hysterectomy to take out the uterus. This can be done via an open surgery or by minimally invasive surgery, also known as laparoscopy or da Vinci surgery (through a few small incisions).

da Vinci® Hysterectomy: Early Stage Cancer Surgery

If the hysterectomy is done for cancer, there may be two options: open surgery through a large open incision and minimally invasive surgery through a few small incisions (using traditional laparoscopy or da Vinci Surgery.)

da Vinci® Endometriosis Resection

Endometriosis happens when tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus (endometrium) grows into areas outside the uterus. It can cause mild to severe pain, among other symptoms.

If surgery is required, there are two common options: open surgery through one large incision and minimally invasive surgery through a few small incisions using traditional laparoscopy or da Vinci® Surgery

da Vinci® Myomectomy (Fibroid Removal)

Surgery to remove fibroids (commonly known as myomectomy), keeping the uterus in place.

This can be performed using open surgery or minimally invasive surgery like laparoscopy or da Vinci® Surgery.

da Vinci® Pelvic Prolapse Surgery

Pelvic prolapse occurs when a pelvic organ, such as the vagina or uterus slips out of its normal position. Surgery to correct this condition is called Sacrocolpopexy. During surgery, a surgical mesh is used to keep the pelvic organ(s) in the correct spot and ease symptoms. A sacrocolpopexy can also be done after a hysterectomy (removal of uterus) to provide long-term support to the vagina.
