Robotic surgery - da Vinci®: "An Almost Scarless Procedure"

One of the most important things to do before your hysterectomy is to learn about the types of surgeries available today. Having become the first robotic surgically trained gynaecologist in North Queensland, Dr Elizabeth Jackson is proud to offer her patients surgery choice, including via da Vinci "robotic" SurgeriesFrom da Vinci:

"Patients see almost scarless results and early clinical data suggests the da Vinci Hysterectomy offers the following potential benefits:

  • Low blood loss

  • Low rate of complications

  • Low chance of a blood transfusion

  • Low chance of surgeon switching to open surgery

  • Short hospital stay

  • Low level of post-operative pain

The da Vinci System has brought minimally invasive surgery to more than 3 million patients worldwide."

To read more about this technique, visit da Vinci's website and our Media page, where you can read articles in the Cairns Post or Dr Elizabeth Jackson's Channel 7 video interview.
