Staying current with the latest innovations in gynecology care is the hallmark of Trinity Health’s team of obstetricians and gynecologists. Our specialists have extensive experience in robotic-assisted procedures, including hysterectomy and treatment for endometriosis.
Hysterectomy – one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in the U.S. – has become a far less difficult surgery for patients using the da Vinci® Si™ HD Surgical System:
- Patients are able to go home after just four hours.
- Recovery proceeds more rapidly.
- There is almost no blood loss – in many cases as little as a teaspoon to tablespoon.
- Patients are able to return to work two weeks after surgery, compared to four weeks with a vaginal hysterectomy and six weeks with an abdominal incision.
With the robotic enhancement and the 3D optics, obstetric and gynecological surgeons can reach into smaller areas and get to within a few inches of the organs. As one Ob/Gyn specialist noted, “Suturing with the da Vinci feels like you’re using your fingers instead of manipulating long-handled instruments as with laparoscopy.”
