Hysterectomy Robotic Procedure

Hysterectomy Robotic Procedure - Columbus gynecologyYour Central Obstetrics and Gynecology Columbus GA doctor may recommend a hysterectomy to treat several conditions. Robotic hysterectomy can be an excellent choice if you aren’t a candidate for a vaginal hysterectomy. Your doctor may recommend a robotic procedure if you have surgical scars or an anatomical irregularity that limits your options.

To prepare you for a robotic hysterectomy, your doctor will make five small incisions in your abdomen and insert slender surgical instruments through those incisions.

Incisions for a robotic procedure are much smaller than those used for open surgery, so you’ll have less tissue trauma and smaller scars than you’d have after a traditional abdominal hysterectomy.

During a robotic hysterectomy procedure:

  • Your surgeon will use control devices to direct the surgical instruments that remove your uterus
  • The robotic system translates your surgeon’s hand movements into precise movements at the instrument’s tip
  • Your surgeon may also remove one or both ovaries and your fallopian tubes, depending on your condition
  • An assistant at the operating table repositions instruments, adds or removes surgical devices, and provides other support to your surgeon as needed
  • Members of the anesthesia team continually monitor your condition and comfort

Advantages of Robotic Hysterectomy

  • Less blood loss during surgery.
  • Superior visualization of the operating site.
  • Less scarring.
  • Less post-operative pain.
  • Faster recovery and shorter hospital stay.
  • Fewer post-operative complications.
