da Vinci® Single-Site™ Hysterectomy

If you've been living with chronic pain, heavy bleeding, fibroids, endometriosis, or pelvic prolapse, take comfort in knowing a life-changing, virtually scarless surgery is here. Performed by Methodist Dallas and Methodist Richardson Medical Center surgeons with the minimally-invasive da Vinci Surgical System, today's hysterectomies provide less blood loss, lower complication rates, and shorter stays, all from a single, tiny incision. Thanks to da Vinci and Methodist, life-changing surgeries are no big deal.

Has your doctor recommended a hysterectomy? If you are considering a hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for a minimally invasive, virtually scarless hysterectomy surgery using da Vinci Single-Site robotic technology.

Methodist Dallas and Methodist Richardson medical centers are among the first hospitals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area where a physician performs the da Vinci Single-Site hysterectomy.

da Vinci Single-Site hysterectomy can be performed to treat the following symptoms and conditions:

  • Adenomyosis – which occurs when your uterine lining grows into the wall of the uterus
  • Chronic pain and irregular periods
  • Endometriosis
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Pelvic prolapse
  • Uterine fibroids

With da Vinci Single-Site Surgery, doctors remove your uterus and possibly your ovaries and fallopian tubes through your belly button using state-of-the-art instruments. Patients who choose da Vinci Single-Site Surgery experience virtually scarless results, similar to single incision traditional laparoscopy.

Potential benefits of a Single Site hysterectomy

  • Small incision for virtually scarless results
  • Low blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Low rate of converting to traditional laparoscopy and open surgery

The da Vinci Surgical System is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high definition 3D vision and a magnified view. Your doctor controls the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.

Though it is often called a “robot,” da Vinci cannot act on its own. Surgery is performed entirely by your doctor. Together, the da Vinci System and Single-Site® instruments allow your doctor to remove your uterus, fallopian tubes and/or ovaries through a single incision, similar to single incision traditional laparoscopy. As a result, you may be able to get back to life without the usual recovery that follows major surgery.

While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci System when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
