What Is a Hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus, as well as the fallopian tubes and ovaries in some cases. This is the second most common surgery in the US for women of child-bearing age after Caesarean sections.
If you are in need of a hysterectomy, our all-female team here at Helio Health & Wellness is happy to help. Likewise, a leading da Vinci® gynecology surgeon, our very own Dr. Sherry Neyman, can give you great results with a shorter recovery time. da Vinci® gynecological surgery is a minimally invasive and very effective technique. Dr. Neyman has performed over 700 hysterectomies using the da Vinci® platform. She sees women from all over Texas who desire a hysterectomy with the smallest incision possible and the quickest recovery. She is also happy to review alternative options to hysterectomy as part of her consult.
How Does a Hysterectomy Work?
In a traditional open hysterectomy, the doctor makes a large incision in the lower abdomen to access the uterus. However, you may be a good candidate for laparoscopic or robotic hysterectomy, in which Dr. Neyman can access your uterus through much smaller incisions, meaning the potential for less scarring, less bleeding, less pain and a shorter recovery time.
The procedure may be partial, leaving the cervix intact, total, removing both uterus and cervix, or total with salpingo-oophorectomy, removing the uterus with one or both ovaries and fallopian tubes.
What to Expect During a da Vinci Hysterectomy
If we are able to perform your hysterectomy through da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgery, Dr. Neyman will be able to do the procedure with just a few small incisions. She specializes in minimally invasive techniques that help prevent pain before it starts and limit narcotic use and side effects.
What Are the Results?
With a da Vinci hysterectomy, you can often expect minimal or undetectable scarring and a considerably reduced recovery time. Additionally, you can typically expect less pain and less blood loss, with same-day discharge and a recovery period of only about two weeks.
