Advancements in Hysterectomies

Silver Cross offers a free discussion on the improvements of hysterectomy with robotic surgery

New Lenox, IL (July 16, 2012) Cesarean section childbirth is the most common surgery among women in the United States. Know what number two is? It’s a hysterectomy. But today’s hysterectomy is very different from hysterectomy procedures commonly performed during your mother’s and grandmother’s generations.

A partial hysterectomy removes the upper part of the uterus. A total hysterectomy removes the entire uterus and cervix. A radical hysterectomy, most often performed in cancer cases, removes the entire uterus, cervix and the upper portion of the vagina. And, depending on your specific circumstances, you may not be subject to a traditional surgical hysterectomy. Today’s technological advancements in the field of medicine allow for a much less invasive laparoscopic hysterectomy and procedures using the DaVinci robotic surgical system.
