Robotic Hysterectomy Procedure
Having your uterus removed is a serious and important surgery that a doctor may recommend in certain situations. This surgery, called a Hysterectomy, can seem like a frightening and dangerous process. At Dr. Susan Fox’s Center for Women, our Robotic Hysterectomy Procedure is a technologically advanced and more efficient way to have your uterus removed.
If you have any questions or concerns about this surgery or method, any of our physicians will be happy to sit down and answer them for you. We want to make sure you felt comfortable and cared for whenever you visit our office.
Here are some of the reasons why a Robotic Hysterectomy Procedure may be recommended for you.
- Uterine cancer: Cancer of the uterus, ovary, or cervix is one of the main reasons why Hysterectomies are performed. Depending on the type of cancer and how far advanced it is, the best option may be to remove the uterus and ovaries altogether.
- Uterine fibroids: Although fibroids are common in many women, sometimes they can become too large or numerous to remove safely. In cases like this, removing the uterus entirely is the best action to take.
- Uterine prolapse: In women who have had several natural births or have begun menopause, it is possible for their uterus to “fall” further down than normal into the vagina. This can lead to pressure building up in the pelvic area and also cause bowel problems.
- Endometriosis and Adenomyosis: These conditions cause the tissue that lines the uterus to being growing either inside the uterine walls (Adenomyosis) or outside the uterine walls (Endometriosis). Both of these conditions cause heavy bleeding and pain.
Compared to traditional Hysterectomies, a Robotic Hysterectomy Procedure your physician will guide a robotic arm to make small cuts to the uterus. You will also have a shorter recovery time than a typical procedure.
