Gynaecological procedures including procedures for benign conditions, cancer, incontinence and hysterectomy can be performed using traditional
laparoscopic techniques and via robotics at Lingard Private Hospital.
One of the most important things to do before a hysterectomy is to learn about the types of surgeries available today. There are more ways to have your
uterus removed than ever before.
If your doctor suggests a hysterectomy, the most common ways to remove your uterus are: open surgery and minimally invasive surgery (traditional laparoscopy
or robotically-assisted da Vinci Surgery).
When using da Vinci Single-Site Surgery for Hysterectomy, the surgeon operates through a small cut in your belly button. Patients see almost scarless results,
like single incision traditional laparoscopy. Clinical data shows da Vinci Single-Site Hysterectomy offers reduced blood loss, lower complication rate
and a shorter hospital stay.
Endometriosis developes when tissue that lines the inside of your uterus (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. It can cause mild to severe
pain, among other symptoms.
Again, if your doctor suggests a resection, the most common procedures are open surgery and minimally invasive surgery (traditional laparoscopy or robotically-assisted
da Vinci Surgery).
Pelvic Prolapse Surgery
Pelvic prolapse occurs when a pelvic organ, such as your vagina or uterus slips out of its normal position. Surgery to correct this condition is called
sacrocolpopexy. During surgery, doctors use surgical mesh to keep your pelvic organ(s) in the correct spot and ease your symptoms.
Pelvic prolapse surgery can be done with open surgery through one large incision (cut). It can also be done with minimally invasive surgery using traditional
laparoscopy or da Vinci Surgery.
Myomectomy (Fibroid Removal)
If you plan to have surgery to remove fibroids, the operation is called a myomectomy. Your doctor will take out the fibroid(s) and keep your uterus in
A myomectomy can be done using open surgery through one large incision (cut). It can also be done using minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy), which
also includes da Vinci® Surgery.
