Robotic Hysterectomy at Good Samaritan Medical Center

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.

A wide variety of benign (non-cancerous) conditions can affect a woman’s reproductive system, which consists of the uterus, vagina, ovaries and fallopian tubes. Most of these conditions affect the uterus, which is the hollow, pear-shaped pelvic organ where a fertilized egg implants and a baby develops during pregnancy. Benign gynecological conditions like fibroids (growth in and/or around the uterus) and endometriosis (uterine lining growing outside the uterus) can cause chronic pain, heavy bleeding and other mild to severe symptoms.

The da Vinci® Surgical System enables your doctor to perform a minimally invasive hysterectomy, even for complex conditions, with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

da Vinci Hysterectomy offers women many potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:

  • Faster recovery and shorter hospital stay
  • Fewer stitches and less scarring 
  • Lower risk of complications and infections
  • Less blood loss and the need for transfusions
  • Quicker return to normal activities

What is a robotic hysterectomy?

Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. A hysterectomy may be recommended to treat many uterine conditions, such as:

  • Endometriosis
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Fibroid tumors
  • Pelvic prolapse
  • Cancer

For complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option and these procedures are offered at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, and Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Massachusetts. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci Surgical 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.
