As with any surgery.: Supracervical hysterectomy means removal of the uterus above the cervix. Da vinci is a tool that allows difficult surgeries to be done through small incisions. Complications of any surgery involve, bleeding, infection, organ injury, and anesthetic risks. None of these are common in the hands of an experienced surgeon and team.
