Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a uterus. There can be many reasons for a woman to undergo a hysterectomy. Some of those are severe pains and heavy bleeding from uterine fibroids, endometriosis or adenomyosis, uterine prolapse, cancer and others. The surgery can be done through the vagina or abdomen. In Canada, the wait times for non-urgent hysterectomy can be long. While waiting you may not have the quality of life you desire. Private hysterectomy can address the issue and give you an ability to stop pains and bleeding much sooner than the current system allows.
It is also called keyhole hysterectomy as the incisions in the abdomen are very small, about keyhole size. The outcomes favour laparoscopic hysterectomy over abdominal hysterectomy because the return to normal activities is much quicker, by over 15 days, the stay in the hospital is much shorter (usually one day) and the possibility of an infection is much lower.
During a robotic-assisted hysterectomy, the surgeon uses a computer to control the surgical instruments. Only 5 quarter-inch small incisions are made in your abdomen. Through these incisions, the doctor will insert the robot’s camera and slender surgical instruments. The superior visualization and precision robotic guidance allow for better overall outcomes for the procedure.
