Women who undergo a robotic hysterectomy may be suffering from or developing signs of:
- Endometriosis, a disorder in which the tissue lining the uterus grows outside of the uterus before it ultimately breaks down and bleeds with each menstrual cycle. This broken down tissue cannot exit the body causing a buildup that can eventually cause cysts and adhesions.
- Heavy Menstrual Bleeding, or Menorrhagia, is menstrual bleeding that lasts longer than 7 days or is abnormally heavy. If left untreated, a woman can develop anemia and other health problems.
- Fibroid Tumors, a collection of muscle cells that form a knot or mass within the uterus causing strong pelvic pain or abdominal pain and, in some cases, frequent urination, swelling or abnormal bleeding.
- Pelvic Prolapse, a bulging of the uterine, bladder or rectal tissue into the vagina caused by weakened pelvic floor muscles. Pressure and pain are primary symptoms that can worsen to affect the urinary and bowel regions of the body.
Our Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Method
Associated Gynecology has mastered the laparoscopic hysterectomy utilizing a traditional laparoscope, which is a lighted tube with a camera attached to the end that is inserted into the body to remove the uterus.
The camera sends images of the body to a video monitor that our surgeons use to guide them during the process. This procedure is designed to be minimally invasive and usually involves a short recovery time.
