There are many potential benefits for patient when comparing da Vinci Surgery to traditional open surgery, including:
- Smaller incisions for minimal scarring
- Patients Heal Faster: After an open hysterectomy, patients are in the hospital two to four days and need six to eight weeks to recover.
In comparison, women who have a robotic hysterectomy are ready to go home in 24 hours or less, and are back to normal activities within two weeks.
- Less Pain: The amount of post-surgical pain is dramatically reduced. With robotic procedures, most patients stop using oral narcotics within 24 hours.
- The Risk of Complications is Typically Reduced: Patients who have robotic surgery are up and moving around much sooner, as a result the risk of blood clots – particularly in the legs – is greatly reduced.
