Incisions and Scarring After Your Hysterectomy

Incision comparison Endometrial Cancer

It’s normal to be worried about surgery—complications, healing time, and the changes your body will undergo internally and externally. Years ago, all hysterectomies were performed abdominally with a long incision from the belly button down. As scientific and medical procedures advanced, surgery became more sterile, safe, and less invasive.

Today with laparoscopic and robotic assisted surgeries, scarring of the abdomen is less noticeable than ever. Both types of surgeries require a few small incisions to place cameras and tools inside the abdomen to perform the intricately detailed procedure of removing the uterus. Robot-assisted surgery allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than is possible with conventional techniques. It is a minimally invasive surgery performed making a few small incisions.

Robotic hysterectomy uses a combination of high-definition 3D magnification, robotic technology and miniature instruments to enhance the doctor’s laparoscopic skills when removing a patient’s uterus and/or surrounding tissues. The camera gives the surgeon enhanced detail, true depth of field and a panoramic view. The robotic hand has a broad range of movement allowing the doctor to see better and work with exact precision to avoid injury to surrounding organs like the bladder and other nerves and blood vessels.

The staff of Nevada Cancer and Surgery Center prides itself on its innovation and ability to perform robotic-assisted surgeries with as many patients as possible that qualify for this type of minimally invasive procedure. A procedure such as this has an overall better outcome with less blood loss, less pain, fewer complications and faster recovery time with minimal scarring.
