Today’s complex conditions ranging from cancer to uterine prolapse, hysterectomy, prostatectomy, fibroids and even heart disease can be treated minimally invasive with daVinci surgery. This approach uses a robotic surgical system that provides your surgeon better vision, more precision and control. It requires only a few small incisions, so you can get back to your life faster — without the usual recovery following major surgery.
One in three women in the Untied States will experience hysterectomy by age 60. For your mother’s generation, hysterectomy typically meant a painful recovery and potential complications.
Traditional gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures. Unfortunately, this surgery can be accompanied by pain and several weeks of recovery.
At Mountain View Hospital we have set out to change the experience of gynecologic surgery with our investment in the most advanced technology for minimally invasive surgery, the da Vinci® Surgical System. Today, the vast majority of gynecologic conditions that require surgery can now be treated effectively – without a big incision. Recovery times are measured in days rather than the usual weeks required with traditional surgery.
No wonder more and more women are choosing da Vinci for their hysterectomy surgery. If you have been putting off surgery to resolve a gynecologic problem, it’s time to ask your doctor about da Vinci Surgery.
