Gynecology

Palmetto Health is the only hospital in the Midland’s to offer da Vinci® GYN surgeries, which means much shorter, more comfortable recoveries. Unlike traditional gynecology surgery, which requires a 6-8 week recovery, you now have the ability to get a hysterectomy that could help you get back to your life faster. The experienced physicians at Palmetto Health have performed more than 1,200 GYN surgeries using da Vinci® technology.

Benefits of da Vinci® GYN surgery include:

  • Smaller surgical incisions (typically 1-2 cm)
  • Reduced blood loss and need for transfusions
  • Less post-operative pain and discomfort
  • Less risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery and return to normal daily activities
