What to Expect with da Vinci® Robotic-Assisted Hysterectomy

Cut your risk of complications.

A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure that removes your uterus. Some hysterectomies, called total hysterectomies, remove your uterus and your cervix. 

 

This type of surgery is common to treat a number of conditions affecting the female reproductive system. If you suffer fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic pain, or a related condition, removing your uterus can be an effective solution to eliminate symptoms and improve your quality of life.

 

A hysterectomy is generally a good option for women living with severe pelvic discomfort. It’s a permanent procedure, and you won’t be able to have children after you have a hysterectomy.

 

Farly Sejour, MD, and our surgical team at Solace Women's Care in Conroe, Texas, are proud to offer the latest in robot-assisted hysterectomy procedures with da Vinci®. If you need a hysterectomy, the da Vinci surgical system may offer less pain and less down time than traditional open surgery.

A da Vinci hysterectomy at Solace Women’s Care combines the precision of robotics and the knowledge of highly trained specialists. Your procedure is performed by the doctor, not robots.

What happens during a da Vinci hysterectomy

While robot-assisted hysterectomy generally carries a lower risk than traditional open surgery, it’s still a serious medical procedure. Be sure to follow our team’s guidelines for preparing for the procedure, which may include reducing the medications you take 

 

Our team takes steps to ensure your comfort before, during, and after your hysterectomy. You lie on a surgical table and receive general anesthesia so you don’t feel pain during the surgery. 

 

When Dr. Sejour begins the procedure, he makes a few small incisions around your bellybutton. In some cases, robot-assisted hysterectomy requires only one incision. He then uses a console in the operating room to guide surgical tools.

 

Dr. Sejour can see the entire operating area through high-definition camera technology. He controls each movement with the precision of robotic tools.

 

Robot-assisted hysterectomy takes 1-3 hours to complete. Once Dr. Sejour removes your uterus, he closes the incisions with sutures. 

 

Most women who undergo robot-assisted hysterectomy spend just one night in the hospital. Vaginal bleeding is common in the weeks following the procedure, and a full recovery may take up to six weeks.


Surgery with da Vinci gives you reliable results with minimal downtime. You can continue living life without the disruption of a major surgery.
