da Vinci® Hysterectomy

The Most Precise Minimally Invasive Option Available

One in three

Physicians perform hysterectomy — the surgical removal of the uterus — to treat a wide variety of gynecologic conditions. Today the vast majority of these conditions, such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, pelvic organ prolapse and heavy menstrual bleeding, can be treated effectively without a big incision.

How is da Vinci Surgery Different?

da Vinci is a breakthrough surgical platform designed to expand a surgeon's capabilities — and for the first time — offer patients a minimally invasive treatment option for complex conditions.

The da Vinci System provides surgeons with:

  • Enhanced Visualization — The surgeons see the surgery site in high-definition 3D vision, with a magnified view of the surgical site.
  • Increased Precision — Instruments are "wristed," which means that the surgeons can turn corners in the surgery site. The da Vinci Surgical System is the only commercially available technology that can provide the surgeon with the precision and dexterity of traditional open surgery, while only requiring 1-2 centimeter incisions.
  • Better Control — While sitting at the da Vinci ergonomic console, the surgeon controls the system, which translates his or her hand, wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of miniaturized instruments inside the patient's body.

Though it is often called a "robot," the da Vinci Surgical System cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. Rather, the da Vinci System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed by the surgeon.
