Dr. Steve is now performing robotic surgery at Thibodaux Regional Medical Center using the Da Vinci Robot. For more information on robotic surgery, come see Dr. Steve at the Southern GYN Specialty Center.
The majority of hysterectomies, approximately 70%, are performed through a large abdominal incision. Currently, about 95% of hysterectomies performed by Dr. Steve are performed using a minimally invasive technique. The lastest technology in minimally invasive surgery is use of the Da Vinci Robot to perform total laparoscopic hysterectomies. The majority of hysterectomies can be performed without an abdominal incision and result in shorter hospital stays, quicker recovery, less pain, and fewer post-operative wound complications.
