Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy

Vaginal Hysterectomy

This is the recommended minimally invasive hysterectomy by the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology. This surgery is done through an incision in the vagina; the surgeon is able to remove the cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. Also during this procedure, repairs may be made in the pelvic floor including bladder and rectal prolapse.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

The most common approach to minimally invasive hysterectomy is laparoscopy. Instead of a large open incision, surgery is done through a few small incisions using a tiny camera and long, thin surgical instruments. The camera takes images inside your body and those images are sent to a video monitor which guides surgeons as they operate.

Robotic or da Vinci Assisted Hysterectomy

During robotic surgery, your doctor will make few small incisions instead of one large incision – similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
