Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery
Learn more about these convenient, safe, faster-healing options
There are times when medication and in-office procedures are not sufficient to treat gynecological conditions. For uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, persistent bleeding or cancers, surgery is often required.
The Woman’s Group doctors are trained in state of the art, technologically advanced, robotic and laparoscopic surgeries to ensure the best outcomes for our patients. Among the laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgeries performed by doctors by The Womans’ Group are:
- Laparoscopic Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy
- Laparoscopic Assisted Supra-cervical Hysterectomy
- Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy
- Operative Laparoscopy; ovarian cystectomy and salpingo-oophorectomy
- DaVinci© Robotic Assisted Hysterectomy
- DaVinci© Robotic Assisted Laparoscopy
- Vaginal Hysterectomy
- Robotic Assisted Sacrocolpopexy for pelvic organ prolapse
Traditional gynecological surgery used to involve an abdominal incision ranging from 6 to 12 inches in length. Because the size of such an incision, the patient experienced more pain due to the trauma to surrounding tissues, was more prone to infection, and experienced longer recovery times.
These days, minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery alternatives accomplish the same or better results for patients with incisions that are less than 1 inch in length.
Through these tiny incisions the surgeon introduces a lighted scope containing a camera and the necessary instruments to complete the surgeries. Thanks to the lighted scope, the surgeon can see the target area and the instruments as she guides them to perform the operation.
For more complex laparoscopic procedures, the doctors at The Woman’s Group use the DaVinci© Surgical System http://davincihysterectomy.com. This system gives the surgeon the additional range of motion and 3D vision required to perform more intricate surgeries.
Minimally invasive surgeries result in many benefits to the patient including less pain, less probability of infection and less recovery time. We are proud to offer these options for our wonderful patients.
