If your doctor recommends hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for an innovative, less invasive surgical procedure called the da Vinci hysterectomy. This procedure uses a state-of-the art surgical system designed to help your doctor perform the most precise and least invasive hysterectomy available today. The da Vinci hysterectomy is performed through five tiny incisions which heal in a fraction of the time.
The da Vinci myomectomy may be an option for women with fibroids who want to preserve their fertility and/or uterus. For women with uterine or vaginal prolapse, da Vinci sacrocolpopexy is also another minimally invasive surgical option for repairing prolapse. The da Vinci surgical system can also be used to preserve and restore, including tubal reversals. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.

For most women, da Vinci hysterectomy offers numerous potential benefits over traditional surgical approaches, including:
- Significantly less pain
- Small incisions for minimal scarring
- Less blood loss and need for transfusion
- Less risk of infection
- Shorter hospital stay
- Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
- Better outcomes and patient satisfaction, in many cases
