Robotic Hysterectomy

At Augusta University Health, having a hysterectomy doesn't necessarily mean open surgery. Our patients are often able to undergo a minimally invasive surgical procedure using da Vinci robotic surgery.

Your doctor may recommend a simple or radical hysterectomy if you suffer from:

  • Gynecologic cancer
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Menstrual pain
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Uterine prolapse

Better Surgical Tools. Greater Precision.

The da Vinci surgical system allows your surgeon to perform a more precise, laparoscopic minimally invasive procedure using:

  • Superior tools for more delicate, targeted and tremorless surgeries.
  • Better visualization, which is critical when working around delicate and confined structures or removing tumors.  In cases of cancer, this procedure is performed by a highly experienced gynecologic oncologist.

Simple hysterectomy

During a simple procedure, the surgeon inserts tiny instruments and a camera through small incisions in the abdomen and removes the uterus through the vagina. A bilateral salpingo oophorectomy may also be performed at that time to remove the ovaries and fallopian tubes.

Radical Hysterectomy

In the case of radical hysterectomy, the uterus, surrounding tissue, cervix and top part of the vagina are also removed. These types of hysterectomies are usually performed to treat gynecological cancers.

Most patients say they are happy they chose the da Vinci robotic surgery over traditional open surgery because it allowed them to have:

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Less pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to normal activities
  • Less risk of wound infection
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
