The experience of Sharp physicians.
If you and your doctor decide you need a hysterectomy, you will be glad to know that Sharp HealthCare has more affiliated physicians performing robotic-assisted hysterectomies than any other hospital in San Diego.
Your surgical options also depend on your diagnosis and your state of health. Ask your doctor if you are a candidate for a robotic-assisted hysterectomy.
Minimally invasive surgery means better health for you.
Robotic-assisted surgery is minimally invasive. This means that instead of a traditional "open" surgery, there are several small incisions made in the abdomen. This is beneficial because the small incisions allow for a much shorter recovery time. With robotic-assisted surgery, you can benefit from the following:
- Fewer complications
- Less blood loss
- Less pain
- Less risk of infection
- Less scarring
Robotic-assisted surgery also allows the surgeon more precision, dexterity and control, along with better view of the anatomy, which is especially helpful with the delicate structures of the pelvis. The surgeon rests his or her hands on the robot's controls and is in control of the robot's movements at all times. The console controls the small instruments that have been inserted through the incisions in the abdomen. Your surgeon and surgical assistant are at your side at all times.
