Single-Site™ daVinci® Hysterectomy

This new procedure is performed with just one single incision through the belly button so you can get back to life faster without the usual recovery following major surgery.  

For most women, Single-SitedaVinci® Hysterectomy offers 

  • virtually scarless results
  • minimal pain and low blood loss
  • faster recovery 

The surgery can be performed in about one hour with a typical hospital stay of less than 24 hours. 

Single-SitedaVinci® Hysterectomy is at Silver Cross Hospital—a designated Center of Excellence for Minimally Invasive Gynecology.  Silver Cross was one of the first hospitals in the entire Midwest where skilled surgeons use the daVinci robotic surgical system to perform hysterectomies through a single incision with virtually scarless results.

How Does it Work?

During the procedure, the surgeon sits comfortably at a console, viewing a 3D, high-definition image of the patient’s anatomy. The surgeon uses controls below the viewer to move the instrument arms and camera.  In real-time, the system translates the surgeon's hand, wrist and finger movements into more precise movements of the miniaturized instruments inside the patient. 

Unlike traditional robotic surgeries requiring three to five small incisions, this new technology allows for a single incision in the belly button.  Here, instruments are placed to treat chronic pain, heavy bleeding, non-cancerous fibroids, endometriosis, and prolapse by surgically removing the uterus, know as a hysterectomy.

Many women who require a hysterectomy are candidates for the robotic, single-incision surgery. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, hysterectomy is the second most common surgical procedure for women in the United States, and an estimated one-third of all women will have a hysterectomy by age 60.
