News: Centegra brings robot-assisted hysterectomies to McHenry County

Women who need hysterectomies now benefit greatly from the advanced technology and highly skilled surgical teams at Centegra Health System. Dr. Darby Murphy and Dr. Alissa Erogbogbo use the breakthrough technology of the da Vinci robotic surgery system to provide women the most advanced hysterectomy surgery available. Murphy and Erogbogbo are both obstetrician/gynecologists with Centegra Physician Care.

“We use minimally invasive techniques to perform hysterectomies on our patients whenever possible,” Murphy said. “We talk to each woman about whether she is a candidate for robotic or laparoscopic hysterectomy and we explain the options that are available.”

Women may benefit from a hysterectomy if they have abnormal bleeding, uterine fibroids or endometriosis. Other conditions can also be treated with hysterectomy.Centegra’s non-invasive hysterectomies help women return to their everyday activities more quickly than with traditional surgical techniques. Patients benefit from less blood loss, small incisions and a shorter, less painful recovery than those experienced with traditional surgeries.”It’s exciting that our patients can have robot-assisted hysterectomies without leaving McHenry County,” Murphy said. “If a woman needs a hysterectomy, she should ask her physician if she is a candidate for this procedure.”To make an appointment with a Centegra Physician Care doctor, call (815) 338.6600.
