About da Vinci® Surgery

Your doctor may recommend surgery if you have been diagnosed with fibroid tumors, endometriosis, excessive menstrual bleeding, pelvic prolapse or cancer.

Gynecologic surgery is often performed using either traditional open surgery or minimally invasive surgery.

Open Surgery

During an abdominal hysterectomy (open surgery), your uterus is removed through a large open incision. The incision must be large enough for your surgeon to see your organs and fit his/her hands and instruments inside your body.

On open surgery incision can be horizontal or vertical. Many women are familiar with the horizontal incision (also called a “bikini” incision) since it is commonly used for a C-section.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Laparoscopy

With traditional laparoscopy, your surgeon operates through a few small incisions using long instruments and a tiny camera to guide doctors during surgery. Your uterus may also be removed through a single incision in the belly button.

da Vinci Multi-Port Surgery

If you are considering gynecologic surgery, ask your doctor about minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery. da Vinci surgeons operate through a few small incisions instead of a large incision - similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System provides your surgeon with a 3D HD view inside your body. da Vinci has special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control.

State-of-the-art da Vinci uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies for simple and complex procedures. Your doctor controls the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.

da Vinci Single-Site Surgery

da Vinci Single-Site hysterectomy is available for benign (non-cancerous) conditions. Your uterus can be removed minimally invasively through a small incision in your belly button. da Vinci Single-Site technology allows for virtually scarless results.
