A hysterectomy, the surgical removal of the uterus, is performed to treat a wide variety of uterine conditions. Symptoms such as chronic pain and bleeding as well as life-threatening conditions, such as cancer or uncontrollable bleeding in the uterus, often require a hysterectomy.

For many patients, robotic-assisted hysterectomy offers numerous benefits over traditional approaches to vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal hysterectomy. The benefits are particularly impressive for more challenging procedures like radical hysterectomy for gynecologic cancer.
Potential benefits may include:
- A faster return to normal daily activities
- A shorter hospital stay
- Fewer complications
- Less blood loss
