minimally invasive surgery
Minimally Invasive Surgery encompasses the ability to use small incisions to achieve surgical outcomes as opposed to the large incisions of laparotomy. The most common minimally invasive surgeries are:

  • Hysteroscopy: a small scope used to visualize the interior of the uterus to evaluate the lining of the uterus. Polyps and Fibroids can be removed by this method.

  • Laparoscopy: a small scope is used to visualize the pelvis. Small incisions are usually made at the umbilicus as well as the in the lower abdomen. Lasers can be used to remove endometriosis through this method. Other procedures, such as removal of fibroids, tubal ligation, removal of growths and even hysterectomy can be performed as well.

  • Robotic Surgery: using the same concepts as the laparoscopy, the daVinci Surgical Robot can be used to achieve more precise surgery and advances the ability to remove fibroids and perform complex surgeries.

  • The advantages of minimally invasive surgery are numerous. The most important is that recovery is much quicker because of the small incisions. The risk of adhesion (scar tissue) formation is also much less. Because of the decreased recovery time, patients also heal quicker and return to normal activities sooner.
