For patients, robotic hysterectomy can offer numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal hysterectomy, particularly when performing more challenging procedures like radical hysterectomy for gynecologic cancer.
Potential benefits include:
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Less scarring
- A shorter hospital stay
- A faster return to normal daily activities
Moreover, robotic hysterectomy provides our surgeons with a superior tool for dissection and removal of lymph nodes during cancer operations, as compared to traditional open or minimally invasive approaches.
Robotic hysterectomy also provides our surgeons with better visualization of anatomy, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder, or in patients with adhesions or difficult anatomy due to masses or cancer.
