What is robotic surgery?

As part of our commitment to excellent patient care, physicians at Carolinas HealthCare System Pineville have adopted the da Vinci surgery for a range of gynecologic surgeries, including hysterectomy and myomectomy. Our surgical staff has undergone extensive training on this remarkable technology to ensure that you receive the advanced, personalized care you deserve.

Facing a hysterectomy?

This is not your mother's hysterectomy. Today, we can treat a range of gynecologic conditions - from chronic pelvic pain to abnormal bleeding - with da Vinci hysterectomy. This procedure requires only a few small incisions, so you can get back to life faster - without the usual recovery following major surgery.

For most patients, da Vinci hysterectomy can offer numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches, particularly when performing more complex procedures.

Potential benefits include

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • A faster return to normal daily activities

da Vinci hysterectomy also allows your surgeon to have a magnified view of your body, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined areas, like the bladder. This means that surgeons have a distinct advantage when performing a complex hysterectomy involving adhesions from prior pelvic surgery, non-localized cancer or an abdominal hysterectomy.

A significant new study confirms the potential benefits women can gain by having the type of da Vinci® hysterectomy that is now offered at Carolinas HealthCare System Pineville.

1 in 3 women will face hysterectomy - are you one of them?
For your mother's generation, hysterectomy typically meant a painful recovery and potential complications. At Carolinas HealthCare System Pineville, we have set out to change the experience of gynecologic surgery with our investment in the most advanced technology for minimally invasive surgery - da Vinci surgery.
