A hysterectomy is a procedure that removes the uterus. At Allure Laser and Medspa, we offer robotic hysterectomy to provide patients with the care they need with shorter downtimes and lower risk of complications. If you are in need of a hysterectomy, contact our office to find out if you are a good candidate for robotic hysterectomy.
When Is a Hysterectomy Necessary?
It may be necessary to perform a hysterectomy to address any of the following:
- Uterine prolapse
- Fibroid tumors
- Cancerous tumors
Other cases that may require a hysterectomy to properly treat include endometriosis, a condition in which the uterine lining grows on the outside of the uterus, and adenomyosis, an abnormal thickening of the uterine walls.
A hysterectomy always results in the removal of the uterus, but depending on your condition, the procedure may also require the removal of the ovaries and fallopian tubes. Regardless of exactly what your procedure will entail, our doctor will speak with you about the surgery beforehand and help you learn everything you need to know.
Before undergoing any procedure like a hysterectomy, you will first need to speak with our doctor and discuss your symptoms. After receiving a definite diagnosis, it may be determined that a hysterectomy is necessary. If this is the case, we will discuss the possibility of robotic hysterectomy with you and help you learn what to expect.
The Benefits of Robotic Hysterectomy
A robotic hysterectomy offers some considerable advantages that can’t be obtained with traditional surgery. One notable benefit of the procedure is the need for fewer and smaller incisions, which typically results in shorter recovery times. The robotic device is completely controlled by the surgeon, but it allows for more precise and controlled movements.
In general, robotic hysterectomy comes with fewer possible complications than open surgery. Patients who cannot undergo open surgery often make good candidates for robotic hysterectomy.
