Our Affiliate System

We are building one organization with affiliates in two regions. Our parent company, now known as Prisma Health, supports both affiliates with overall direction and leadership as we continue to align. We will soon share one brand across the entire organization to better reflect this. The rebranded Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group will continue to operate as a joint venture between the Midlands affiliate and the USC School of Medicine.

We are becoming Prisma Health in early 2019

Robotic Assisted Surgery

Robotic Assisted Hysterectomy: A Less Invasive Surgical Procedure

If your doctor recommends hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for an innovative, less invasive surgical procedure using robotic technology. This procedure uses a state of the art surgical system to help your doctor perform the most precise and least invasive hysterectomy available today.

Greenville Ob/Gyn’s Dr. Erin Thurston and Dr. Eric Troutman are credentialed robotic surgeons and have performed numerous hysterectomies using daVinci robotic surgery, a scientifically advanced technology.

For most women, robotic hysterectomy includes many potential benefits over traditional surgery:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss and need for transfusion
  • Less risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
  • Small incisions for minimal scarring
  • Better outcomes and patients satisfaction, in many cases

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is patient -and procedure specific. Learn more about GHS’ Robotics Program.
