Traditional Laparoscopic vs. daVinci Assisted Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

I talked to my gynecologist today about a hysterectomy. He suggested either the traditional laparoscopic hysterectomy or the Da Vinci robot assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy. He said there is really no advantage of one over the other -- he performs and teaches both methods. If I choose the traditional laparascopic method, it will be done at a hospital 5 minutes away from where I live. If I decide to have the Da Vinci assisted, I have to travel to another (larger) city an hour away and would have to get a hotel room for the night prior to surgery. Both methods will require an overnight stay in the hospital. I'm trying to decide which I want. Any suggestions or comments?

Re: Traditional Laproscopic vs. Da Vinci Assisted Laproscopic

I chose the Davinci because my Dr is a master on the thing. One thing to think about is with the robot the Dr has an amazing 3-d, high def view of your insides. This means they can see things that may otherwise be missed such as in my case he was able to remove a lot more endo than if he just used laproscopy. I was very happy with my outcome and didn't need to stay in the hospital over night. But I also just had a 20 minute ride back home.
