What is hysterectomy?

This is the surgical removal of the uterus (the womb). A female’s uterus holds a pregnancy, therefore, a hysterectomy is a procedure that is performed only for legitimate indications and when childbearing is no longer desired. Some instances that may prompt the recommendation of a hysterectomy are inclusive of but not limited to: endometriosis, fibroids and cancer of the uterine, cervix or ovaries. There are currently three widely practiced surgical approaches to hysterectomies: open traditional, vaginal and robotic assisted.


Is a hysterectomy a major operation?

Yes. Any surgery that involves entering your abdomen is considered a “major” surgery, because a complication can result in major risks to your health, such as bleeding and infection.


Why would I need a hysterectomy?

Hysterectomies are done to improve the quality of life for a woman suffering from debilitating periods, endometriosis, chronic pelvic pain, painful sex, or anemia due to heavy periods. Hysterectomies are also done to remove cancer of the uterine, cervix or ovaries. If a woman wants to preserve her options for pregnancy, hysterectomy is not the correct choice and as such, other options would be explored.


What are the complications of a robotic hysterectomy?

A robotic hysterectomy’s complications are no different from the complications of any other type of surgeries. In fact, surgeries in generalincludes 3 inherent risks: bleeding, infection and possible damage to other structures.

With this being said, it is noteworthy that bleeding is minimal with robotic surgery. Although possible, it is highly unlikely, and very rare that the bleeding can be of such a volume to require a transfusion.

In terms of infections, any opening of your abdomen can introduce germs from the outside world into this normally sterile part of your body.Paired with your body’s natural immune system, antibiotics are given before, during, and/or after surgery to lower the chances of an infection.

Surgery involves cutting, whether it’s done with a scalpel, surgical scissors, a cautery, or a laser. As such, it is always possible another structure may be damaged. The huge advantage of the robot is that its capability for meticulous surgery using 3-D stereoscopic views and micromanipulations of its instruments makes this complication rare.


How does a specialist like Dr. Bozdogan performs a robotic hysterectomy?

Simply put, while under a general anesthesia, small cosmetic incisions are made in the abdomen. Through stereoscopic viewing glasses that render a 3-D view inside your pelvis and using his knowledge of anatomy and physiology, he carefully seals the blood supply to your uterus and the ligaments that hold your uterus in place. Free from these attachments, he then can remove your uterus. Once this process is completed, the incisions are cosmetically closed with glue, staples, or tiny sutures.

It’s always the word of mouth that’s the best advice. Here are some of our…

There are no words to describe the care Dr. Boz and his staff have given me. I am 2 days out of surgery (partial hysterectomy) and feel like a new person already. Dr. Boz has called 2 times to check on my recovery, I have never experienced that personal care with any doctor I have had. After 10 years of suffering from pain, multiple trips to the ER with no answers, I found Dr. Boz and was finally diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis. I had surgery 2 weeks later and I'm finally on the road to recovery! Thank You for giving me my life back!

I’m just so happy that I found Dr. Bozdogan and I can’t thank enough him for helping me. I always have very painful period to the point I pass out from it. Every gynecologist was saying it’s normal but it isn’t. Dr. Bozdogan from my first visit was amazing! He described with smallest details my surgery and what to expect after.He has amazing bedside manner and very professional! I highly recommend Dr Bozdogan if you suffer with endometriosis

From my first consultation, I could not be happier with the service I received from Dr.Boz and his staff.
Dr.Boz listened to me and my issues and asked questions and had honest answers for me. He is both personal and professional and I would highly recommend him to any woman who is having pelvic pain, endometriosis or other gynecological issues.

I’m thankful That my concerns were heard. Dr. Bozdogan is Very professional and easy to talk to regarding my fibroids. I got an appointment quickly, no wait time in the office, friendly staff, ultrasound in office to confirm my fibroids. He scheduled my surgery quickly and it was outpatient do I could recover at home. He answered all my questions and made sure that The fibroids were removed robotic surgery without removing my uterus so I could have more kids if I chose to.

Dr. Boz is a great doctor for endometriosis. He took his time to explain everything to me and show me what he wanted to look at. I just had my surgery with him and I have nothing but appreciation for him with the time he takes with me. I’m also feeling much better then I was feeling before. Thank you Dr. Boz!!!

Dr Boz was amazing with me and I'm so happy I used him for my surgery. I went for several Doctoredbefore deciding he was the one to perform my Myomectomy (fibroid removal surgery). From the initial appointment for diagnosis until the follow up after surgery he was there all away!I was able to text hI'm personally with questions if I needed and he put any anxieties at ease with all the reasons why he will do what he planned for me. He explained my procedure step by step very clearly and had a great bed side matter at the hospital as well. As for as the surgery went he preformed it with ease and with in 8 days I'm doing great and with nearly no scars.
