Hysterectomies with Less Pain, Less Downtime
In just days be back to enjoying your life.
Academy Women's Healthcare understands the many concerns of women facing a hysterectomy. Until recently, hysterectomies were performed using a large abdominal incision resulting in a long hospital stay and many weeks of recovery.
Fortunately, AWHA is excited to provide minimally invasive options for women from laparoscopic to the new, breakthrough procedure in advanced robotics. This advanced robotic procedure, called the da Vinci® Surgical System, is the latest in medical technology. With unmatched precision, there is significantly less pain and downtime. Many patients are able to leave the hospital the same day and are recovering and back to enjoying their life in less than a week. AWHA is proud to be the leader by being the first OB/GYN in all of southern Colorado to offer this revolutionary procedure.
What makes the da Vinci® Surgical System so different
The da Vinci System is a state-of-the-art surgical platform with 3D, high-definition vision and miniaturized, wristed surgical instruments designed to help doctors take surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. By helping doctors to overcome the challenges of traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci is changing the experience of surgery for women around the world.
da Vinci surgeries offer several benefits, including:
- Significantly less pain
- Minimal blood loss and need for transfusion
- Fewer complications
- Shorter hospital stay
- Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
- Small incisions for minimal scarring
- Better outcomes and patient satisfaction, in many case
The da Vinci Surgical System
With da Vinci, small incisions (1-2 cm) are used to introduce miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. Seated comfortably at the da Vinci console, your surgeon views a magnified, high-resolution 3D image of the surgical site.
At the same time, state-of-the-art robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate your surgeon's hand movements into precise micro-movements of the da Vinci instruments.
The System cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. Rather, the da Vinci System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon.
