Minimally Invasive Robotic Hysterectomy Dramatically Reduces Risks and Recovery Time

Physicians at All About Women bring advanced single-site incision surgery to Gainesville, Lake City, and surrounding areas

There are many women's health conditions that result in the need for a hysterectomy –from fibroids to cancer. The womb is symbolic of a woman's existence and her life role as mate and mother. It's no wonder that facing a hysterectomy –the removal of the uterus and possibly surrounding tissue –causes great anxiety and concern.

The compassionate surgical team at All About Women Obstetrics & Gynecology is happy to answer your questions and address your concerns. We understand the monumental change a hysterectomy can bring your life.

We offer da Vinci® robotic surgery equipment for hysterectomy, which expands the scope of minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery and shortens patient recovery time... because your comfort, safety, and quick recovery are our priority.

What is a robotic hysterectomy?

Robotic hysterectomy uses high-definition 3D magnification, miniature instruments, and technology to enhance a surgeon's accuracy when performing a partial, total, or radical hysterectomy.

Unlike a traditional hysterectomy, which requires a large incision and retraction to allow human hands, the minimally invasive da Vinci® Surgical System uses small incisions in the abdomen for the slender robotic arms and tiny surgical tools. The enhanced visualization, precision, and dexterity provide a safer method for working around the bladder, blood vessels, and nerves, thereby avoiding possible injury.

What are the benefits of a robotic hysterectomy?

The enhanced vision, miniaturization, increased range of motion, and mechanical precision of robot-assisted hysterectomy offers significant benefits for our patients, including:

  • Quicker recovery time
  • Less post-surgical pain/less medication
  • Decreased blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Fewer complications
