Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery
As technology advances, gynecological surgical options are expanding. Minimally invasive surgery is becoming more and more common. These procedures are performed through tiny incisions instead of one large opening. Because the incisions are small, patients tend to enjoy faster recovery times and less discomfort than with conventional surgery, but with all of the same benefits.
Following are some specialized gynecological surgeries that are currently available.
A hysterectomy is major surgery, but with new developments, the discomfort, risk of infection and recovery time has all been decreased.
Laparoscopic removal of benign gynecological tumors
Surgical removal is recommended when tumors in the gynecological tract are causing pain or affecting the function of the organs involved.
Laparoscopic removal of uterine fibroids
With recent advances in surgical treatment options, surgeons may now perform surgical removal of uterine fibroids while still preserving the functionality of the uterus
Laparoscopic repair of pelvic organ prolapse with uterine preservation
Uterine prolapse can occur when the ligaments supporting the uterus weaken, and it descends into the vaginal canal.
Laparoscopic excision of endometriosis
Robotic assisted laparoscopic excision of endometriosis can be used to remove growths and scar tissue or destroy them with intense heat.
Safer Alternative: Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery
One of our main priorities is to provide a safer alternative to traditional open surgery by using a minimally invasive approach whenever possible, based on the disease we are treating, the patients’ anatomy, and the patients’ overall medical condition. This offers the following benefits to our patients:
- Faster recovery;
- Less pain;
- Smaller incisions;
- Early return to normal activities;
- Shorter hospital stay;
- Decreased risk of infection.
The robotic surgical system provides us with a groundbreaking alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. The surgical robot enables us to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.
Not all patients are candidates for a minimally invasive surgical procedure; however we are able to offer this option to the vast majority of our patients.
