Less Invasive Robotic Hysterectomy Brings Fewer Readmissions, Lower Costs

Patients with robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy surgeries had significantly fewer readmissions within 30 days of surgery than those who underwent other approaches, such as laparoscopic, open abdominal and vaginal, according to a study in The Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology.

The study looked at 2,554 patients, 601 of whom were placed in the robotic group. Estimated blood loss, length of stay and sum of readmission costs were also lower in the robotic group than in the laparoscopic, abdominal or vaginal groups.
