When a problem such as fibroids requires the removal of your uterus, having it done with a scope through button hole size incisions makes for a less painful, rapid recovery.

If you’re like most women, the thought of a hysterectomy means a long recovery and a large visible scar. It used to be that total abdominal hysterectomy (removal of the uterus and cervix through a large abdominal incision) was the only type of hysterectomy offered to women. But today innovative laparoscopic techniques and the development of improved surgical devices allow for less invasive procedures.  Consequently, hospital stays, and recovery times, have also been significantly reduced.

The newest, called Da Vinci Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Hysterectomy, is truly redefining hysterectomy. Few surgeons are trained to perform this advanced procedure.  In fact, the doctors at Copperstate OB/Gyn were among the first to perform this procedure in the Tucson Area.

Most importantly, this results in less pain and a quicker recovery compared to traditional hysterectomies because of the small incisions used in the laparoscopic approach. Sparing of the ovaries, in most cases, avoids the need for hormone replacement.

The numbers tell the story ...

While hysterectomy should be our last resort to resolve a gynecologic problem, if you do need one then ask if you would be a good candidate for the Da Vinci Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Hysterectomy.
