What is a Hysterectomy?

A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a woman's uterus. There are several reasons why a woman may choose to have a hysterectomy:

 

Uterine fibroids that cause pain, bleeding, or other problems

Uterine prolapse, which is a sliding of the uterus from its normal position into the vaginal canal

Cancer of the uterus, cervix, or ovaries

Endometriosis

Abnormal vaginal bleeding

Chronic pelvic pain

Adenomyosis, or a thickening of the uterus

 

Hysterectomy for noncancerous reasons is usually considered only after all other treatment approaches have been tried without success.

Dr. Stefanie A. Schultis has been performing robotic surgery for more than 15 years.  She believes whole-heartedly in the daVinci® Surgical System. The system was approved by the FDA in 2000. The technique has been rapidly adopted by hospitals in the US and Europe for use in a wide range of conditions including hysterectomies.

da Vinci® Single-Site® Surgery​

Dr. Schultis controls the arms while seated at a computer console near the operating table. The console gives a high-definition, magnified, 3-D view of the surgical site.

Why is it called the da Vinci Surgical System?

The product is called "da Vinci" in part because Leonardo da Vinci invented the first robot.
