Why Have a Hysterectomy?

The most common reasons why women undergo a hysterectomy are heavy periods, fibroids, pelvic pain caused by endometriosis, unsuccessfully treated pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), adenomyosis, prolapse of the uterus, cancer, obstetrical emergency.

What Hysterectomies Do We Perform?

At Modern Women’s Health, we perform primarily minimally invasive hysterectomies with the da Vinci robotic surgical system and laparoscopy, although rarely some patients will need a hysterectomy by an open incision. Dr. Jukes’s preference is always to perform minimally invasive approaches when appropriate.

da Vinci Surgical System Hysterectomy

da Vinci® hysterectomy is an incredibly effective technique for a hysterectomy, and is Dr. Jukes’s preferred minimally invasive option. The da Vinci surgical system allows the doctor to perform surgery with incredible precision by operating with robotic instruments from a console. 

Only a few small incisions are used, which adds even more benefit for the patient because it results in less blood loss, pain, and scarring, as well as a quicker recovery. Dr. Jukes is one of the top robotic gynecological vaginal surgeons in the nation, and has performed countless procedures on the da Vinci surgical system.

“I absolutely love Dr. Jukes and Ginger Bane, NP! I have been a patient for nearly 14 years. In 2006, I had a total hysterectomy by Dr. Jukes. I had suffered excruciating pain (from severe endometriosis) for 15 years while under the care of my previous gynecologist. All he wanted to do was give me more pain medication. I pleaded with him to do an ultrasound, and/or biopsies to see what was causing such debilitating pain. He refused and just recommended more pain meds. I’m a Registered Nurse (for 34 years) and I assure you that you will get the finest of care by Dr. Jukes and her staff.”
