If you're facing hysterectomy, you probably have stories in the back of your mind from when your mother or a friend had hers. A six-week or longer recovery; the pain and pain medication; and, of course, the hard-to-hide scar. The good news is we’ve come a long way even in the past few years. You may be a candidate for an innovative, less-invasive surgical procedure called da Vinci hysterectomy. With the da Vinci surgical technology, you can have the most precise and least invasive hysterectomy available today.
Not only are we the only hospital in Madison County with the da Vinci Surgical System, we also have the latest technology available. What that means to our surgeons is the ability to see in 1080i HD resolution with unsurpassed visual clarity.
Roberto Darroca, M.D., Angela Marshall, M.D., Valerie Gathers, M.D. and Jennifer Nemunaitis-Keller, M.D. are the only Madison County obstetricians-gynecologists trained on da Vinci. If your doctor determines you are a candidate for hysterectomy, mention the possibility of a da Vinci surgery and ask to be referred to these Community OB-GYN physicians.
With da Vinci you'll have a smaller incision, less pain and discomfort, a reduced hospital stay and recovery, and may even be back to normal activities in days. See what other women have to say.
