What happens during robot-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy?

Precision. 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.
Elegant surgery. The doctor preforms the hysterectomy laparoscopically - the use of the robot allows for increased dexterity, flexibility, visibility, and manipulation during the surgery. A very difficult surgery becomes much easier with the use of the new da vinci robotic equipment.
Robotic manipulation. The robotic arms give the surgeon wrist like motion with the surgical tools to complete the surgery laparoscopically that in many case before we performed in an open procedure. The uterus is released and then delivered through the vagina or morcellated and removed through a port. The patient recovers much quicker and with less pain than an open procedure.
