Outpatient hysterectomy is a surgical procedure in which Dr. Brown will remove your uterus. He often uses the da Vinci robotics system to achieve better precision and accuracy, and Dr. Brown was one of the first providers in the area to offer minimally invasive options for hysterectomy and other gynecological surgeries. Since this procedure is minimally invasive, normally you’re able to go home the same day.
Benefits of robot-assisted minimally invasive outpatient hysterectomy vs. traditional hysterectomies include:
A hysterectomy can reduce unpleasant gynecological symptoms, such as heavy menstrual bleeding, and lower your risk of developing certain types of cancer.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for an outpatient hysterectomy, Dr. Brown will review your symptoms and medical history. He will complete a pelvic exam, ultrasound and any other necessary procedures to detect or rule out gynecological problems.
After your surgery, plan to have someone drive you home. Take some time off to rest and recover. Take medications as prescribed and follow Dr. Brown’s post-surgery instructions to prevent complications.
You can often return to normal everyday activities within about a week. Attend all follow-up appointments with Dr. Brown to ensure optimal results and call the office if you experience unusual symptoms.
