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

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

Costs you the same: 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. ...Read more

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: 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. ...Read more

Can i swim 3 weeks after a robotic hysterectomy?

Can i swim 3 weeks after a robotic hysterectomy?

If no raw areas: If there are no external wounds that are raw, you may swim. Increase your activity gradually, as you will not be in as good a shape as you were before surgery. It is good that you are getting back to your exercise. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Minimally invasive: In terms of invasiveness: using the natural orifice approach is least invasive- this is a vaginal hysterectomy (vh). Next would be laparoscopic hyst, then robotic assisted hysterectomy (rah) &the most invasive is an open abdominal incision (laparotomy).

How long is the recovery from a  robotic hysterectomy?

2 weeks: A total laparoscopic hysterectomy done with the da vinci robot makes for a much easier recovery than a traditional hysterectomy. Usually patients can go home the same day or after an overnight hospital stay. Most can go back to work in 2 weeks unless they have a physically demanding job. No intercourse for 6-8 weeks. ...Read more

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

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

Great Question: 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. ...Read more

How long will I have to stay in the hospital after robotic da vinci hysterectomy?

How long will I have to stay in the hospital after robotic da vinci hysterectomy?

Generally < 24 hours: I do a lot of robotic surgery. I find that most patients can go home later that day (about 4 to 6 hours after surgery) or the following morning. Once a woman is able to get up and walk around a bit, urinate, and keep a little food and liquid down, she is usually ready for discharge. Because robotic surgery involves only "key-hole" incisions, the majority of patients recover much more quickly. ...Read more
