Robotic Hysterectomy - Medical Animation
If you are a female and have certain problems with your reproductive organs, your doctor may recommend a robotic hysterectomy to remove your uterus. Your reproductive organs include your vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. You may need a robotic hysterectomy if you have one of the following diseases or conditions. Heavy or constant uterine bleeding, anemia and pelvic pain, cancer in your uterus, cervix, or ovaries, non-cancerous fibroid tumors in your uterus, or slipping and sagging of your uterus into your vagina due to weak or injured pelvic muscles and uterine ligaments. Before your procedure an intravenous line or IV will be started. You may be given antibiotics through the IV to decrease your chance of infection. You'll be given general anesthesia. A breathing tube will be inserted through your mouth and down your throat to help you breathe during the operation. Your surgeon will make a small incision near your belly button and insert a plastic tube called a port. Carbon dioxide gas will be pumped into your abdomen through this port. The gas will inflate your abdomen giving your surgeon more room to see and move the surgical tools. After your abdomen is inflated a high-definition camera will be inserted into this port. Your surgeon will make additional port incisions for robotic instruments as well as instruments used by patient side assistants. An assistant will insert all of the robotic tools through these ports. Unlike standard laparoscopic instruments, these tools can rotate 360 degrees and have more flexibility than the human wrist. Seated at a special console, your surgeon will operate the robotic arms and the camera with joystick-like controls and foot pedals. A computer will translate the exact movements of your surgeon's fingers into precise movements of the surgical tools. At the same time a high-definition vision system will provide a magnified three-dimensional stereoscopic view of the surgical area. Depending on your condition you may have a partial hysterectomy, in which your surgeon will remove your uterus but leave your cervix, fallopian tubes, and ovaries in place. If you have a total hysterectomy, your surgeon will remove your cervix along with your uterus. If you have a radical hysterectomy, your surgeon may also remove your fallopian tubes, ovaries, the upper part of your vagina, as well as nearby tissues such as your pelvic lymph nodes. At the end of your procedure the tiny incisions will be closed with stitches, staples, surgical glue, or closure tape dressings. After your procedure your breathing tube will be removed and you will be taken to the recovery area for monitoring. You will be given pain medication as needed. You may continue to receive antibiotics through your IV. You may be released from the hospital the same day or within one day after the procedure.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"

"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches which control the sense of taste."
