How Do Hysterectomy Procedures Compare?
A new study finds robotically-assisted hyseterectomies are not any better than the more traditional laparascopic procedure.
They just cost more.
In recent years, robotically-assisted hysterectomies have gained in popularitity.
But researchers at Columbia University find both approaches have similar outcomes and low complication rates.
The only difference -- robotic hysterectomies cost about $2,000 more.
