Robotic Surgery for Hysterectomies & Removing Fibroids
Robotic surgery facilitates precise and complex surgery, using a minimally-invasive approach.
This state-of-the-art technology offers multiple benefits:
- Reduces recovery times by half
- You can usually go home the next day
- Pain and discomfort during recovery is significantly reduced
- You can return to work in a much shorter amount of time
Why Robotic Surgery?
When surgery is the best treatment option, it’s important to consider all risks including your age, desire to have children, and the degree of symptoms.
The benefits of robotic surgery include:
- Very small incisions
- Less scarring
- Faster recovery times
- Quicker return to work and other activities
- Less pain after surgery and reduced need for pain medication
- Appetite and normal bowel function returns quicker
- Reduced risk of complications
Robotic surgery for fibroids
Dr. Cook has a special interest in for the treatment of uterine fibroids. Fibroid growths of the uterus, for example, occur in up to 30 percent of women, and up to 80 percent of these women will develop them before the age of 50.
Although most women will not need treatment for fibroids, minimally-invasive robotic surgery is a great option for those cases causing specific symptoms which require them to be removed.
Robotic surgery for hysterectomy
Robotic surgical techniques are equally appropriate if you need a hysterectomy. The procedure is often referred to as a bandaid hysterectomy since only a small adhesive strip is needed to cover the incision.
A high-tech option with multiple benefits
Robotic surgery utilizing the Davinci Robot Assisted Technique offers multiple benefits over traditional types of surgery for a hysterectomy or the removal of fibroids and Dr. Cook is a specialist in the use of the robotic method.
No surgical procedure should be taken lightly and Dr. Cook can determine if you need surgery and if the robotic technique is the best option for your individual condition and personal circumstances.
