There are a variety of techniques that a surgeon can use in minimally invasive surgery to operate with less injury to the body than with open surgery. These techniques are safer than open surgery, require less recovery time, and allow patients to heal with less scarring and pain. Minimally invasive gynecological surgery is usually done on an outpatient basis and requires only a brief hospital stay.
Laparoscopy is the most common type of minimally invasive surgery used. With laparoscopy, surgery is performed through one or more small incisions, using small tubes and miniature video camera and surgical instruments. Robotic surgery provides the surgeon with a magnified 3-D view of the surgical site, which gives greater control, precision, and flexibility.
Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery provides women with innovative, leading-edge options when surgery is necessary as the result of endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, and other gynecologic conditions.
In-office surgery is also an option offered for many procedures. Hysteroscopy, sterilization, and ablation may be performed in the office in many cases, utilizing local anesthesia. This allows our patients to avoid the cost and inconvenience of the hospital as well as minimizing the need for general anesthesia. More importantly, our patients can return to their lives quickly and with minimal interruption.
One of the greatest advantages of minimally invasive gynecological surgery is that it allows patients to get back to their daily lives quickly while experiencing less pain
