Robotic Hysterectomy Surgery

Have you recently been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer or another women's health condition that may require surgery? Our team of specialists are here to help you understand your surgical options so you feel confident that your surgical plan is the best option for your individual condition. 

Have you been experiencing heavy bleeding during your period, or severe/extreme pain in your lower belly?  An abdominal hysterectomy can save or significantly improve your quality of life. Your women's health provider may suggest this surgery if you have been diagnosed with:

  • Cancer of the ovaries or uterus
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibroids in the uterus
  • Prolapse

If you suspect you have one of the listed conditions contact your Lee Health provider to see if surgery is a treatment option for you. 

Minimally Invasive Surgical Options for Assisted Abdominal Hysterectomy Surgery

Lee Health uses robotic surgery as an innovative way to offer patients minimally invasive gynecological surgery with faster recovery times and less scarring.

Traditional open gynecologic surgery—using a large incision to access the uterus and surrounding anatomy—has been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures. Lee Health has two robots that can perform gynecological robotic-assisted surgery, the da Vinci™ Surgical System. 

To treat or reduce the risks related to your unique uterine condition, your Lee Health provider may recommend surgery. If so, ask your doctor about the da Vinci™ Surgical System being used for your abdominal hysterectomy surgery.

Da Vinci Xi Surgical System

At Lee Health, our surgical team uses a state-of-the-art robotic platform called the da Vinci™ Surgical System. For gynecology surgeons, the da Vinci Xi offers more options than the previous da Vinci system thanks to multi-quadrant access and versatility for a variety of gynecologic procedures. This enables surgeons to perform delicate and complex procedures with a few small incisions and with reduced recovery time for our patients. 

Benefits of Robotic Assisted Abdominal Hysterectomy Surgery

Through continued innovation and advancements in general surgery, Lee Health surgeons use the da Vinci™ Surgical System to operate through just a few small incisions with exceptional precision.  The innovations of these surgical systems afford surgeons improved visibility and communication with the OR team. These improvements are responsible for significant improvements in surgical accuracy and patient safety. Additionally the robotic instruments that are used are significantly improved over laparoscopic instruments. 

As a result, your surgeon is able to perform your surgery with enhanced vision, precision, and control. Robotic assisted transvaginal hysterectomy surgery enables you to recover faster and with less pain than traditional open surgery.

The da Vinci™ Surgical System provides a unique and new surgical approach to very invasive traditional alternatives.

Benefits of da Vinci™ Surgical System

  • Shorter Recovery Time
  • Significantly Less Pain
  • Less Blood Loss
  • Less Scarring
  • Faster Return to Normal Daily Activities
  • In Many Cases Better Clinical Outcomes

It is important to discuss the benefits and risks of robotic assisted abdominal hysterectomy surgery with your surgeon to determine if this is the best option for you.
