In our last blog, we wrote about private laparoscopic hysterectomy. Robot-assisted surgery is now coming into wider use for treating conditions like endometriosis, uterine fibroids, uterine bleeding, adenomyosis and others. A robotic hysterectomy is a variation of GYN laparoscopic surgery using special remotely controlled tools. It provides surgeons with special wrist instruments that bend and rotate at far greater precision than the human wrist. This, along with three-dimensional magnified vision, give 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. It provides an improved ability to suture the vagina after removal of the uterus and cervix. Operating through small incisions leave minimal scarring which leads to a faster recovery. Other advantages of robotic hysterectomy over a traditional open surgery are lower infection rates, much faster recovery time, less pain and fewer post-op complications.
All surgeons performing this procedure have to be properly trained. Health Vantis works with facilities that offer this GYN robotic surgery in a safe, affordable and private manner. In Canada, only a few places offer it and the wait times for robotic hysterectomy are significant. If you are interested in having this procedure done, contact us to find out more details.
