Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

What is Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery?

Minimally Invasive Surgery is a type of surgery that utilizes less invasive techniques to complete a surgery. Using a laparoscope, robotic system, hysteroscope, or laser, our surgeons perform surgery with fewer, smaller, incisions and offer an ambulatory, same-day surgical experience. Our physicians at The Center for Gynecologic Oncology specialize in gynecologic and urogynecological surgeries and use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible.

How is gynecologic minimally invasive surgery performed?

Our surgeons perform:

This form of minimally invasive surgery uses a hysteroscope which is inserted through the cervix to diagnose problems of the uterus.

This low-risk, minimally-invasive diagnostic procedure uses a laparoscope to examine specific internal organs and obtain biopsy samples if necessary.

Surgical laser procedures can be important tools in the treatment of gynecologic malignancies.

Robotic-assisted surgery utilizes three to four 8mm incisions and provides your surgeon a 3D-high-definition view of the surgical area and allows for a greater range of motion through small incisions

What are the benefits of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery?

Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery offers patients the following benefits compared to an open incision:

  • Fewer complications
  • Faster recovery time
  • Less blood loss
  • Less pain
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Reduced scar tissue and less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stays

What gynecologic conditions can be treated with minimally invasive gynecologic surgery?

Not every patient is a candidate for minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. However, whenever possible, our surgeons will opt to use minimally invasive gynecologic surgery to treat:

  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Benign fibroids
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Endometriosis
  • Gynecologic Cancers such as cervical cancer, endometrial cancer and ovarian cancer
  • Ovarian Cysts
  • Pelvic prolapse
  • Pelvic Pain
