Hysterectomy

Robotic first at Clovis Community

Clovis Community Medical Center's first robotic surgery — a hysterectomy for patient Terri Garcia — was performed by surgeon Kelli Beingesser in the hospital's brand new, state-of-the-art surgical suite specifically designed to house the da Vinci® robot. This dedicated operating room is one of the hospital's inpatient operating suites which recently opened as part of the $300 million Clovis Community expansion.

FAQ

Q. Will I need to have Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) after my hysterectomy?

A. It depends on your age and ovarian status. After a hysterectomy, most women take hormones until their early fifties, but the number drops to about 10% after that. The decision for or against HRT is an individual one, and your surgeon will help you make that choice.

Types of Hysterectomies

There are a variety of surgical techniques for hysterectomy surgeries including minimally invasive techniques and traditional surgery. Talk to your doctor to find out if minimally invasive hysterectomy surgery is right for you.

Types of da Vinci Surgery

da Vinci® Prostatectomy

Prostatectomy is the surgical removal of the prostate gland. The da Vinci prostatectomy is a minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgical procedure that removes the cancerous prostate gland and related structures. Da Vinci surgery is ideal for this type of delicate urologic surgery, because the site is not only tightly confined but also surrounded by nerves that affect urinary control and sexual function.
