Great news for patients facing benign hysterectomy: I am excited to offer da Vinci® Single-Site® Hysterectomy for qualified patients – it’s another minimally invasive option that may provide patients with virtually scarless results.
Minimally invasive Single-Site hysterectomy offers patients the potential benefits of a short hospital stay and minimal scarring. At K&B Surgical Center we put our patients first and strive to provide you with the most minimally invasive surgical options. We are truly thrilled to be a leader in this field in Southern California. As one of a limited number of hospitals offering this option for patients who need a hysterectomy for benign conditions, we are demonstrating our ongoing commitment to providing patients with up-to-date minimally invasive surgical options. I am extensively trained and experienced in robotic-assisted surgery since completion of my fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery in 2009. I have performed hundreds of robotic-assisted gynecologic surgeries over the past seven years since the inception of my advanced gynecologic training.
A da Vinci Single-Site Hysterectomy offers the following potential patient benefits:
- Low rate of complications
- Low blood loss
- Low conversion rate to traditional laparoscopy and open surgery
- Short hospital stay
- Virtually scarless
During a da Vinci procedure, the surgeon is 100% in control of a robotic-assisted system, which translates the surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. The da Vinci Xi System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system. As a result, da Vinci enables the surgeon to operate with enhanced vision and precision. The specially designed Single-Site instruments allow the surgeon to perform hysterectomy through a single incision in the belly button, leaving the scar almost unnoticeable.
Here’s what the future of single site surgery has in store for my patients.
