Robotic Surgery

We Heart Robotics Banner

For the benefit of our patients, North Hills Hospital offers robotic surgery with the da Vinci Robot. This new technology provides surgeons with greater precision, control, and access to hard-to-reach areas, allowing extremely complex operations to be performed through just a few small incisions. Now, minimally invasive techniques can be used for procedures whose complexity once demanded open surgery.

Robotic Surgery: Hysterectomy

Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has for many years been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures. Yet with open surgery can come significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process and threat to surrounding organs and nerves.

For complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci System can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.*
