If your doctor recommends hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for da Vinci Hysterectomy, one of the most effective, least invasive treatment options for a range of uterine conditions. da Vinci Hysterectomy is performed using the da Vinci™ Surgical System, which enables surgeons to perform with unmatched precision and control – using only a few small incisions.

Sansum Clinic Physician Since
Thank you so much for everything you have done to make my pregnancy and birth a better experience. I appreciate you taking the time to discuss all my apprehensions. I know a lot of your job is repetitive and I am glad that I still felt your dedication to my care. On the day of my delivery I was content knowing you were there when it came time to deliver. I was blessed to have you there the entire time helping me. All the pain took me by surprise and I was able to endure it easier and push better with your guidance and attention. Thank you for being there. My family and I hold you in the highest regard. The experience was more than we could have hoped for.
