Robotic Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy is the second-most common surgical procedure for women in the United States, and an estimated one third of all U.S. women will have a hysterectomy by age 60.

For many patients, a minimally invasive hysterectomy using the DaVinci robotic system can offer numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to vaginal or open abdominal hysterectomy — particularly when performing more challenging procedures like a radical hysterectomy. 

You may be a candidate for a robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy, a highly effective, minimally invasive option for a range of uterine conditions. 

At The Women’s Specialists, Dr. Sudheer Jayaprabhu, FACOG, trained in June 2009, is skilled in performing hysterectomies using the da Vinci™ Surgical System. He has performed over 350 of these surgeries to date as of 2014 with this number steadily increasing.

This robotic system enables surgeons to operate with remarkable precision and control — using only a few small incisions.

Potential benefits include:

The robotic system also allows your surgeon better visualization of the anatomy, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder, blood vessels and other internal organs. This allows robotically trained surgeons to perform radical cancer surgeries and help overcome challenges associated with adhesions from previous operations.

As with any surgery, the benefits cannot be guaranteed. Successful outcomes depend on both the patient and the procedure. While a robotic-assisted radical hysterectomy and related procedures are considered safe and effective, the technique may not be appropriate for every individual. You should always discuss all the treatment options with your physician to understand the risks and benefits.
