Definition / What is this procedure?
If you have a benign (non-cancerous) condition that affects your health and quality of life, your doctor may suggest surgery. Surgery to take out your uterus is called a hysterectomy. It can be done with open surgery or minimally invasive surgery.
Main features of Surgery
Surgery can be done using traditional laparoscopy or robotic assisted Surgery in mumbai. This means your surgeon operates using long instruments inserted through a few small incisions in the abdomen. One of the instruments is a tiny camera that sends images to a video screen in the operating room to guide doctors as they operate. With minimally invasive surgery, there are various options for taking out the uterus. Your surgeon will suggest the option he/she thinks is best for you.
Who is it recommended for? (Ideal Candidate)
Serious complications may occur in any surgery, including Surgery, up to and including death. Risks include, but are not limited to, injury to tissues and organs and conversion to other surgical techniques. If your doctor needs to convert the surgery to another surgical technique, this could result in a longer operative time, additional time under anesthesia, additional or larger incisions and/or increased complications. Individual surgical results may vary. Patients who are not candidates for non-robotic minimally invasive surgery are also not candidates for da Vinci Surgery. Patients should talk to their doctor to decide if da Vinci Surgery is right for them. Patients and doctors should review all available information on non-surgical and surgical options in order to make an informed decision.
