In our last blog, we wrote about laparoscopic hysterectomy. Robot-assisted surgery is now coming into wider use for treating conditions like endometriosis, uterine fibroids, uterine bleeding, adenomyosis and other. A robotic hysterectomy is a variation of laparoscopic surgery using special remotely controlled tools that provide surgeons with special wrist instruments that bend and rotate at far greater precision than the human wrist. This along with three-dimensional magnified vision gives doctors the ability to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control.
Robot-assisted surgery allows for excellent visualization of the blood vessels, ureters and surrounding tissue as well as improved ability to suture the vagina after removal of the uterus and cervix. Operating through small incisions leaves minimal scarring and leads to faster recovery. Other advantages of robotic hysterectomy over a traditional open surgery one are lower infection rates, much faster recovery time, less pain and fewer post-op complications.
