Many women suffer from gynecologic conditions that may require a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus). Open hysterectomy incisions can be vertical or horizontal (often called the bikini cut), and the recovery can mean days in the hospital, along with a 6 to 8 week recovery time at home. Today, this surgery doesn’t have to mean a major, open procedure with a long recovery. Innovative robotic surgery has changed all that.
Dr. Strebel and Dr. Grolle were the first physicians to perform a single-site robotic hysterectomy on a woman at Sunrise Hospital. Together, they are one of the few surgical teams in the Las Vegas area who perform single site surgery. Using the most advanced technology available today, Doctors Streble and Grolle perform this delicate and complex surgery through one tiny incision in the navel – virtually scarless surgery!
In addition to having only a small scar hidden away inside the navel, the benefits of single-site hysterectomy include minimal pain, little blood loss, quick recovery, short hospital stays, and high patient satisfaction. Experienced with the revolutionary robotic da Vinci Surgery System, our doctors can perform this surgery in about an hour.
With the da Vinci System, surgeons operate through one small incision in the belly button instead of a large open incision. The da Vinci System provides your surgeon with a 3D HD view inside your body. Da Vinci has special wristed instruments that bend and rotate with far more agility than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, and control.
The da Vinci System has brought minimally invasive surgery to more than 2 million patients worldwide, and da Vinci Hysterectomy is the most-performed, minimally-invasive hysterectomy in the United States.
Discuss all of your treatment and surgical options, including minimally invasive da Vinci Hysterectomy, with Dr. Strebel or Dr. Grolle to learn what’s best for you.
