Holland Hospital offers the very latest da Vinci® Surgical System for hysterectomy, the most technologically advanced robotic assisted surgical system available. Using da Vinci, trained surgeons perform hysterectomies through tiny 1–2 cm laparoscopic incisions, decreasing recovery times and increasing successful outcomes.
How the da Vinci® Hysterectomy Works
The da Vinci Surgical System is powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology. The System allows your surgeon’s hand movements to be scaled and translated into precise movements of micro-instruments within the operative site. The System’s 3-D camera allows precise movements for the delicate hysterectomy procedure.
The da Vinci System cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. Instead, it requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon. The da Vinci® Hysterectomy has been used in tens of thousands of successful, minimally invasive hysterectomies worldwide.
