How much more does the DaVinci robot hysterectomy cost compared to the regular one?

Costs you the same

Hysterectomy
Insurance companies reimburse the most for an open hysterectomy, from which you will need about six weeks to return to work. The reimbursement to the surgeon is the same for laparoscopic and robotic, both of which can often get you back to work in 2 weeks (still no sex for 8 weeks.) Those of us who have put in the time to learn robotic surgery do it because it is the best thing for our patients

How much does a hysterectomy cost with davinci robot in nd?

Hysterectomy cost

Hysterectomy
Your question can have multiple answers. One hospital accross the street can bill 10K for a surgery and the other hospital can bill for the same procedure and equipment 50K or more. These numbers are just examples but I wanted to make a point. Its in your best interest to find out with hospitals inside your local community. Be a well educated patient and ask with no fears.

Dr. David Earle answered:

Just had a partial hysterectomy with the Davinci. When trying to sit up can a person get a hernia were one of the incision iis? Hurts more.

Yes

Pain
Yes, but pain at an incision site is normal. One site may hurtle than the others if that was the extraction site for the uterus, and they sdid extra suturing inside. A hernia is classically associated with a bump that you can push clack in to the abdomen. A hard bump you cant push in under the incision is normal for 6-8 weeks or so. Hope this helps.

Dr. Gregg Nishi answered:

I had a robotic hysterectomy and sling surgery one week ago. Last two nights I have lower leg cramps keeping me from sleep?

Leg cramps

Deep_vein_thrombosis
Any swelling of your legs? Is it in both legs or just one. The main concern is having a blood clot in your leg called a DVT, which can break off and go to your lungs, called a PE. I would go see your doctor and maybe get an ultrasound of your legs.

Dr. PAUL EUN answered:

What happens during robot-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy?

Precision

Hysterectomy
Robot assisted surgery is performed in order to accomplish hysterectomy with minimally invasive method possible when abdominal hysterectomy must be done otherwise. Several small incisins are made in the abdomen and robotic instruments are placed through each incision and the surgeon actually performs the procedure remotely sitting at a surgeon's console controlling all robotic instruments.

How should i mentally prepare for a robot assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy?

Great Question

Cancer
Understand why you are having the hysterectomy. Most of my patients do not have cancer and are having a robotic assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy because of pain, pelvic pressure or bleeding problems. You need to be comfortable with the idea of a hysterectomy, of not having periods any more. Focus on the positive. Make sure you have taken care of details, like food in the house post op.

I'm going to have a hysterectomy and would like to know more about having this done using robotic surgery method. 

Revolutionary option

Hysterectomy
Robotic hysterectomy using the da Vinci surgical system allows the surgeon to perform complex surgery using minimally invasive techniques. We can do hysterectomies this way without making a large incision. The benefits to the patient are less pain, less blood loss and a faster recovery. WFAA news: http://macobgyn.com/drpl/?q=node/97

Dr. Gregg Nishi answered:

I have had a robot hysterectomy and two weeks later surgery for an excessive amount of blood. I have been having a massive amount of gas and nausea.

Gas and nausea

Obstetrics_and_gynecology
You really shouldn't have that much gas and nausea 2 weeks after having a hysterectomy. It would be different if you had surgery on your stomach, small or large intestines. You should go see your gynecologist.

Lipoleimyoma. I just had a davinci hysterectomy because of one. I know they are rare. What will my doctor do with it?

Lipoleimyoma

Asymptomatic
These are pretty rare, so I haven't seen much information on them. From what I gather, the ones that are asymptomatic require no treatment. If yours caused enough pain or bleeding that you needed a hysterectomy, then I assume there would be no further treatment because the lipoleimyoma is completely gone. But I'll defer to my surgical gyn colleagues to see if they have any more insight.

Dr. Gabriel Goren answered:

I want a Hysterectomy how do i get one?

At UR age?

Hysterectomy
What for? This sounds not the brightest idea coming from I assume a healthy young person. If there would be a major medical problem the ObGyn would have offer a solution by I do not detect. Hysterectomy has very severe consequences and I hope nobody in a right mind would offer his/her services. Consult a shrink....
