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" Surgeries. From 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."
