Robotic Hysterectomy Procedure
As a woman, it is imperative that you are always aware of the state of your reproductive health. Whether you are attempting to become pregnant or not, signs such as abnormal bleeding or pain are never a good indication. To ensure that you are in optimal condition, our experts at Dr. Susan Fox’s Center for Women offer many different services. In the case that your doctor wishes to ensure that your symptoms are not caused by a more serious underlying issue, a Robotic Hysterectomy Procedure is typically recommended.
Your doctor may request a hysteroscopy if they need to take a closer look at the lining of your uterus. During this procedure, a hysteroscope will be used, which is a thin viewing tool that is hooked up to a camera and light.
Some form of sedation or anesthesia will be used to make the process as pain-free and comfortable as possible for the patient. Additionally, to facilitate the insertion of the hysteroscope, the cervix will be dilated using specialized instruments as well as a gas or liquid solution.
The tip of the hysteroscope is then gently inserted into the vagina and worked through the cervix to access the uterus. This specially crafted tool was made to give professionals a closer look at any abnormalities that may be present in the lining of the uterus.
The goal of this procedure is typically to properly identify the underlying cause for abnormal vaginal bleeding after a woman has gone through menopause. However, it is also commonly used to identify women who are experiencing uterine fibroids, endometrial ablation, polyps, retained placenta, and Mullerian malformations.
Many women also seek a hysteroscopy procedure when they are experiencing issues with infertility. If you have tried to become pregnant for sometime and have not succeeded, it is important to explore every avenue related to both the female and male counterparts. If the male checks out as sound, the female may have some sort of obstacle.
If fibroids or polyps are found during a hysteroscopy, the growths can be removed from the uterus without having to undergo an invasive surgery. This is a fantastic advancement that has saved countless women from having to deal with the side effects and recovery time associated with a major surgical procedure.
A Robotic Hysteroscopy Procedure is a reasonably simple and commonplace one that our team at Dr. Susan Fox’s Center for Women performs on a regular basis. It has proven to be incredibly useful in diagnosing patients in the past and determining the best course of action for every individual’s unique needs.
Thankfully, there are not many side effects you will need to worry about following this procedure. You may experience light spotting and cramping that should subside within a few days of your appointment, but most of the side effects will be related to the anesthesia or sedative that is administered before the procedure. If any pain or discomfort continues after a week, you should contact your healthcare provider immediately.
