da Vinci for Women

da Vinci gets you back to your life faster.

Surgery remains an accepted and effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions, including hysterectomy, but traditional open surgery (using large incisions) comes with significant pain, lengthy recovery time and threat to surrounding organs and nerves. For many women this discomfort and extended time away from their routine is also a significant cause of anxiety. Fortunately, the less-invasive da Vinci™ Surgical System offers a safe and effective alternative.

How does it work?

Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci System* can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.

There's still a surgeon in control.

da Vinci is called a surgical robot, but the surgeon is in control. A special console provides the surgeon magnified 3D images of the surgical area and hand controls that move the surgical instruments with precision that isn’t possible from human hands. da Vinci’s movements are the doctor’s movements but better, allowing access through incisions many times smaller than a surgeon’s hand and a steadiness and range-of-motion that humans can’t accomplish. da Vinci’s eyes are the surgeon’s eyes, only better — microscopic cameras provide unprecedented views into the tiniest of areas allowing incredible surgical accuracy.

Is da Vinci right for you?

Depending on your particular need, da Vinci robotically-assisted surgery may be the best treatment option for you. As with any surgery, any stated or implied benefits cannot be guaranteed since surgery is specific to each patient, condition and procedure. Consult your physician about all treatment options, including the risks and benefits, for you and your specific condition.

Benefits of da Vinci:

  • Greater precision minimizes pain & speeds up healing
  • Greatly reduces the need for a long hospital stay​
  • Recovery time is greatly reduced—often 1-2 weeks (vs. 6-8 weeks for normal, open surgery)
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Gives physicians more flexibility with difficult cases
