Ask your surgeon about minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.
Depending on the nature and severity of your condition or disorder, your gynecologic surgeon may recommend a minimally invasive procedure. In a minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, the surgeon makes a small incision in the abdomen or vagina and uterus in order to insert thin surgical instruments. The instruments are equipped with a light and camera, allowing the surgeon to see the internal organs on a monitor and perform any necessary procedures. Your gynecologic surgeon may use minimally invasive techniques to treat conditions such as:
- Ovarian cysts
- Undesired fertility
- Uterine fibroids
- Abnormal uterine bleeding
- Pelvic pain
- Pelvic organ prolapse
Minimally invasive surgery offers a number of significant benefits. Patients normally recover more quickly, have shorter hospital stays, experience less pain, have smaller incisions, lose less blood, experience fewer surgical infections, and typically return to normal activities faster.
