daVinici® Robot Q & A

What is the daVinci robot?

DaVinci is a surgical system that allows the Women’s Health Specialists, PLLC, surgeons to perform robotic hysterectomies using only small incisions. 

Robotic surgery isn’t actually performed by a robot. Your surgeon controls robotic arms using a bedside control panel as they view the surgical site on a 3D high-definition monitor. 

When might I need a robotic hysterectomy?

There are several reasons why the Women’s Health Specialists, PLLC, team might recommend a robotic hysterectomy. These include:

  • Uterine or cervical cancer
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Pelvic pain from endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), or other conditions

Hysterectomy isn’t usually the first-line treatment for female health issues, but if you’ve tried conservative treatments already, it might be the right option for you. 

In most cases, the team recommends robotic hysterectomy over long-incision traditional hysterectomy. They can use the daVinci system to perform even highly complex hysterectomies. 

How does the daVinci robot work during surgery?

Your surgeon directs the robotic arms to create one small incision in your belly button (Single-Site® technology) or several small incisions around your navel. The robotic arms respond immediately to every command from your surgeon as they remove your uterus through the small incisions. 

The robotic arms can rotate a full 360 degrees, offering agility far beyond the human hand. Also, the robotic arms are entirely impervious to even the slightest movement or tremor as they complete your surgeon’s commands.

The daVinci robot never makes a move without input from your surgeon. Your surgeon still performs the hysterectomy, with the robotic arms working like an extension of their own hands. 

What are the advantages of surgery with the daVinci robot?

Surgery with the daVinci robot offers many advantages compared to the traditional hysterectomy method using one long incision. The benefits of robotic hysterectomy include:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less scarring
  • Less pain
  • Less bleeding
  • Shorter time in the hospital
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Faster recovery

Although all surgeries carry certain risks, the daVinci surgical system reduces those risks as much as possible. As a result, it’s a reliable, proven method for hysterectomy with a consistently excellent success rate.

The daVinci robot offers the most advanced path to hysterectomy, giving you the smoothest and most complication-free recovery possible. Call Women’s Health Specialists, PLLC, or schedule your robotic hysterectomy consultation online today.
