Hysterectomy Surgery


Advanced Minimally Invasive & Robotic Surgery Techniques

If you suffer from the pain and heavy bleeding associated with fibroids, endometriosis or prolapse and have been told by your doctor you need a hysterectomy, you are not alone. Approximately one in nine women will undergo hysterectomy in her lifetime making it one of the most common surgical procedures among women.

What is a hysterectomy?

Hysterectomy is surgery to remove a woman’s uterus. During a hysterectomy, your surgeon may also remove your ovaries and fallopian tubes.

Single-Incision Robotic Hysterectomy

Headshot of Scott Dinesen, DO

Scott Dinesen, DO, of Doylestown Hospital was first in Pennsylvania to perform single-site robotic hysterectomy, the latest advancement in minimally invasive surgery.

Single-site robotic surgery offers all of the benefits of robotic surgery – less pain, less blood loss, less risk of infection, shorter hospital stay, quicker recovery – plus the added benefit of a single incision in the belly button so women are left with a small, nearly invisible scar.

Conditions Treated

Hysterectomy may be recommended by your doctor to treat the following conditions:
  • Uterine Fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine Prolapse
  • Uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, endometrial cancer
  • Adenomyosis

Types of Hysterectomy Surgery

It is important that women understand all of the treatment options available so you can make an informed decision about your care and get back on your feet as soon as possible. There are a number of surgical approaches your doctor may discuss with you, including:
  • Traditional open surgery
  • Vaginal surgery
  • Laparoscopic surgery
  • Minimally invasive robotic surgery
