da Vinci Hysterectomy


A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. It may be a total hysterectomy which removes the entire uterus and the cervix, or a partial hysterectomy which removes only the upper portion of the uterus and leaves the cervix. Hysterectomy may be performed for a variety of reasons such as certain types of reproductive system cancers, bleeding and severe endometriosis. Dr. Hayes is able to perform a more effective and minimally invasive hysterectomy through the use of the da Vinci Robotic Surgery. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions using the da Vinci System, she 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.

For patients, the benefits of da Vinci Hysterectomy may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less scarring due to small incisions
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • Better clinical outcomes in many cases
