MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- A hysterectomy may be required to treat gynecologic cancers, such as uterine cancer, endometrial cancer, or early stage ovarian cancer. A hysterectomy may be recommended for severe symptoms from benign (non-cancerous) gynecologic conditions, such as uterine fibroids or endometriosis. Thanks to the da Vinci Surgical System at Northern Westchester Hospital, women have access to the most advanced technology and expertise in minimally invasive hysterectomies.
Historically a hysterectomy has been an extensive procedure that requires weeks of recovery time. When minimally invasive hysterectomy is an option, the most advanced minimally invasive surgery is now performed with the assistance of a robot. Using the da Vinci Surgical System®, the gynecologic surgeon controls highly sophisticated instruments to perform precise surgery through few tiny incisions.
The sophisticated instrumentation and cameras give the surgeon enhanced range of motion, visibility and precision. Because the surgeon can perform the surgery with smaller incisions, the patient may have less pain, less blood loss, lower risk of complications after surgery, shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery and return to routines.
