The Forefront of da Vinci Robotic Hysterectomy in Orlando

Florida Hospital Cancer Institute offers state-of-the-art da Vinci Robotic Hysterectomy in Orlando, affording patients less pain, smaller incisions, and quicker recovery time. When medication and other treatments are unable to relieve symptoms, a da Vinci robotic hysterectomy is often recommended to provide a more effective, definitive and long-term solution for excessive menstrual bleeding. If you are considering this procedure or your doctor has recommended a hysterectomy, you are not alone - one in three women in the U.S. will have a hysterectomy before turning 60. To learn more about da Vinci Robotic Hysterectomy in Orlando, or to schedule an appointment, call (407) 303-1700 or click here to fill out an online assistance form.

  • Significantly less pain
  • Minimal blood loss and need for transfusion
  • Fewer complications
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
  • Small incisions for minimal scarring
  • Better outcomes and patient satisfaction, in many cases

How a Robotic Hysterectomy Works

This procedure is performed using the da Vinci Surgical System, a breakthrough surgical platform which enables gynecologists to operate with unmatched precision, dexterity and control. By overcoming the limitations of both traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci is revolutionizing gynecologic surgery for women.

Only the da Vinci® Surgical System overcomes the limitations of both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopic surgery. da Vinci is a breakthrough surgical platform designed to expand a surgeon’s capabilities - and for the first time - offer patients a minimally invasive treatment option for complex conditions.

The da Vinci System provides surgeons with enhanced visualization ─ including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view of the surgical site ─ increased precision, and better control. While sitting at the ergonomic console, the surgeon controls the system, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body.

Though it is often called a "robot", the da Vinci Surgical System cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. Rather, the da VinciSystem requires that every surgical maneuver be performed by the surgeon.

Safety of da Vinci Robotic Hysterectomy

When considering surgical treatment options, many patients have concerns about safety. In particular, patients question whether da Vinci Surgery is as safe as traditional methods. In fact, the da Vinci Surgical System has been used successfully in tens of thousands of minimally invasive procedures worldwide. In addition, da Vinci offers multiple, redundant safety features, which make the most effective, least invasive approach potentially as safe as traditional surgical methods.

First and foremost, the da Vinci System cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. Instead, the da Vinci System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon.

With da Vinci Surgery, as with traditional methods, you are under the care of at least two medical professionals: Your surgeon as well as his or her supporting team. Your surgeon requires at least one assistant at your side during surgery. This team-member assists with tasks, such as switching between instruments, to provide your surgeon with the optimal da Vinci instrument for the procedure step being performed. 

Just a few feet away, your surgeon operates using the console controls. As your surgeon maneuvers the controls, da Vinci scales, filters and translates his or her wrist and finger movements into precise movements of miniaturized instruments at the patient-side cart. Tremor reduction minimizes unintended movements, which means that da Vinci instruments can move in a more precise manner than a human hand. 

And because the da Vinci Patient Cart does the work of holding and repositioning the instruments and camera – and because your surgeon operates while seated -- surgeons can experience much less fatigue in performing surgery with the da Vinci System. 

Finally, during the course of an operation, the da Vinci System will perform millions of safety self-checks. The System is designed to be fail-safe, which means that in the event of power interruption or a safety-check failure, the System is designed to shut down safely, allowing the surgeon to remain in control of the procedure.
