One of the most minimal of minimally invasive surgeries, da Vinci Surgery System is used for hysterectomies and to treat endometriosis, cancer, uterine prolapse and other gynecological conditions.
In spite of growing demand for minimally invasive procedures, the majority of these operations are still performed using large, abdominal incisions. These surgeries typically result in significant blood loss, and may mean several days in the hospital followed by weeks of recovery time. For many women, facing traditional gynecologic surgery, the period of recovery and time away from normal everyday activities is daunting.
University of Missouri Health Care physicians offer a less invasive surgical treatment option-the da Vinci Surgical System. If your doctor recommends surgery for your condition, you may be a candidate for one of these new, minimally invasive procedures. For most patients, minimally invasive procedures performed with this system can offer numerous potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:
Shorter hospital stay
Less pain and scarring
Less risk of infection
Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
Quicker return to normal activities
