Recovery from fibroid removal, hysterectomy or pelvic floor procedures can be quick with the da Vinci Surgical System at Davis Hospital and Medical Center.
A new, minimally invasive approach to hysterectomy, da Vinci Hysterectomy, combines the advantages of conventional open and minimally invasive hysterectomies – but with far fewer drawbacks. da Vinci Hysterectomy is becoming the treatment of choice for many surgeons worldwide. It is performed using the da Vinci System, which enables Davis Hospital and Medical Center’s surgeons to perform surgical procedures with unmatched precision, dexterity and control.

How do I qualify?
If your doctor recommends hysterectomy, fibroid removal, or pelvic floor procedure, you may be a candidate for da Vinci. Or call us directly at 801-807-7489with any questions.
Davis Hospital and Medical Center is home to one of few da Vinci systems in the state of Utah. It provides a superior surgical tool allowing the surgeon better visualization of anatomy than traditional techniques. This is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder or reproductive system, giving a distinct advantage when performing complex procedures.

What are the risks?
As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient- and procedure-specific. While radical hysterectomy or abdominal hysterectomy performed using the da Vinci Surgical System are considered safe and effective, these procedures may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
