If you suffer from painful fibroids, pelvic organ prolapse, or treatment-resistant endometriosis, your uterus may need to be removed. Dr. Caroline Conner is proud to offer the traditional open-hysterectomy and the da Vinci® robotic surgical system hysterectomy in Fountain Valley, CA. A hysterectomy is the surgical elimination of a woman's uterus. It can be performed as either an open (also known as traditional) surgery or as a laparoscopic robotic-assisted da Vinci surgery by one of our doctors. You can schedule a private consultation with our team to learn more.
Hysterectomy Treatment Options
A hysterectomy is performed at an accredited medical facility and usually takes about two hours to complete. Our practice offers two types of hysterectomies: laparoscopic and da Vinci hysterectomy.
A laparoscopic hysterectomy is performed using a laparoscope or tube-like device that has a camera attached to the end. Usually, three small incisions are made in the abdomen, which allows for the insertion of the laparoscope to remove the uterus.
In a da Vinci hysterectomy, your doctor will make several small incisions in the abdomen. Using long tools and a camera, your doctor will go through the incisions to start the removal of your uterus. The surgeon will have a magnified view on a monitor to visually assist the robotic hands to help control movements with the tools in the removal of your uterus. Once the uterus is out, your incisions will be closed, and you will be sent to recovery. You may be in the hospital for 1 – 2 days. Compared to a traditional hysterectomy, this method limits the amount of scarring on the skin and may reduce recovery time.
Dr. Caroline Conner Reviews
I’ve been to my fair share of BioTe physicians for HRT since 2014. I’m so glad I cross paths with Dr. Conner because she goes above and beyond the service other physicians I’ve had. She is extremely knowledgeable in HRT and takes in consideration the patients symptoms not just the tests. In my HRT journey I have met more Dr’s that don’t know what they are doing than do and Dr. Conner is a breath of fresh air. Her staff is professional and amazing. Mercedes (her assistant) took care of all my needs and made sure to follow up with me so I know what the next step always was. I will definitely be referring Dr. Conner’s HRT treatments to all my friends and look forward to my next office visit!
Hormone therapy expert. Wonderful staff and amazing Doctor. 10 stars!
Dr. Conner is full of knowledge and truly cares to have her patients succeed when it comes to having a baby. My husband and I are extremely grateful for her support and guidance during our baby journey. She has taken her time with us and explains all the details. I would highly recommend her to family and friends when looking for a OBYGN. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Dr. Conner.
I’ve been to a few different doctors for testosterone therapy and Dr Connor is by far the best and most knowledgeable in the industry. Definitely would recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Connor and Mercedes are very knowledgeable and professional. I never had to wait in the lobby for my appointment, they were always on time. I have been to many Dr offices where I feel I am rushed. They spent as much time as we needed to make sure all my questions were answered. We highly recommend.
