I am wondering if the da vinci method is better than the traditional one.
Well, if you did not have endometriosis, the answer might be different! In my opinion, when endometriosis is involved, the key is the skill and knowledge of the surgeon rather than the method. If at all possible, surgery with an endometriosis specialist
could offer you the best outcome.
Because endometriosis is not cured with a hysterectomy, it is important that your surgeon have the ability to skillfully remove the endometriosis implants that are found. If your surgeon cannot skillfully remove the endo, then it doesn't matter by what method your surgery is done.
For instance, my surgeon was unable to remove the endometriosis on my bowel walls. It had nothing to do with the method of the surgery but everything to do with the skill of my surgeon. Thus, years after my hysterectomy, I had to travel to a specialist to have that endo removed.
If you are concerned only with the hysterectomy aspect and not the endometriosis aspect of the surgery, then it is likely the da Vinci surgery done by a skilled surgeon could be the superior method.
