If you or a loved one is facing a hysterectomy, Saint Mary’s Hospital has advanced care options available from our highly skilled and trained surgeons.

Why a Hysterectomy?

Women may undergo this common procedure for many reasons, including abnormal vaginal bleeding, cancer, chronic pelvic pain, endometriosis and uterine prolapse.

Why a Hysterectomy at Saint Mary’s?

Saint Mary’s is a leader in the latest options for minimally invasive hysterectomies, including laparoscopic procedures, and since 2010, robotic-assisted hysterectomy performed with the da Vinci® Surgical System. This advanced technology offers you benefits, including:

  • Reduced risk of postoperative complications.
  • Shorter recovery times. Patients typically return home within 24 hours and often return to their regular routines within a few weeks.
