If your doctor recommends hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for an innovative, minimally invasive surgical procedure utilizing the da Vinci Surgical System. This revolutionary surgical technique offers numerous potential benefits over traditional surgeries, including significantly less pain, less blood loss and a quicker recovery to normal activities.
The da Vinci Surgical System is a tool that utilizes advanced, robotic technologies to assist your surgeon with your operation. It does not act on its own and its movements are controlled by your surgeon. The da Vinci Surgical System has a 3D high definition (3D-HD) vision system, special instruments and computer software that allow your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. The 3D-HD image can be magnified up to 10 times so your surgeon has a close-up view of the area he or she is operating on. The da Vinci instruments have mechanical wrists that bend and rotate to mimic the movements of the human wrist – allowing your surgeon to make small, precise movements inside your body.
