SHARING IS CARING

Report: Impact of Different Hysterectomy Methods and Patient Satisfaction

From the Hysterectomy News Articles List

A study conducted using HysterSisters members was recently published in the Interactive Journal of Medical Research (i-JMR) and reveals that women who had a da Vinci robotic-assisted hysterectomy reported greater satisfaction than women whose surgeons used other approaches, including open, vaginal and laparoscopic hysterectomies. The study found that women's satisfaction with hysterectomy surgery has generally improved over time, and that women who had da Vinci Hysterectomy reported the greatest overall satisfaction and willingness to recommend and choose the same type of surgery again.

"Previous research shows that compared with open surgery, minimally invasive surgery, including robotic-assisted surgery, can lower health care spending and reduce work absenteeism," said study lead author Michael Pitter, M.D., Chief of Minimally Invasive and Gynecologic Robotic Surgery at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center. "Results from our survey reinforce the importance of patient satisfaction and time to return to normal activities when evaluating the cost-benefit of different surgical approaches."
