Robot-Assisted Surgery Helps Ease Hysterectomy Complications

"A minimally invasive laparoscopic hysterectomy technique could be key to helping some women avoid conversion to open (and riskier) surgery.

The study, co-authored by Lim and published in December in Obstetrics & Gynecology, examined the data of 6,992 women treated at 52 hospitals across Michigan. Data encompassed an 18-month period in 2013-14 and was taken from the Michigan Surgical Quality Collaborative, a statewide initiative that helps surgical teams improve patient care."
