Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Gynecologic Surgery Q & A
What is minimally invasive laparoscopic gynecologic surgery?
During the procedure, the laparoscope is inserted through the small abdominal incision. A gas is used to open and expand the cavity for better viewing. A tiny camera on the laparoscope transmits video onto a monitor so your surgeon can perform the procedure.
What conditions can be treated with laparoscopic gynecologic surgery?
- Ovarian cysts and fibroids
- Tubal ligation procedures.
- Diagnostic evaluation and biopsies
- Removal of internal adhesions or scar tissue from prior surgeries
If you have a gynecological condition that requires surgery, talk to your doctors at Women's Obstetrics and Gynecology to find out if laparoscopy is an option for you.
How is laparoscopy performed?
Using the video and small surgical instruments, your surgeon can perform the needed procedures within the reproductive organs. Your OB/GYN then closes the incisions; two to three small scars may remain, but much smaller than if you had open surgery.
What are the benefits of laparoscopy versus open surgery?
- Smaller incisions and less scar tissue, lowering the chance of infection
- Less bleeding
- Shorter hospital stays or outpatient
- Quicker recovery time
- Less pain
With the advancements in technology, more and more gynecological disorders requiring surgery can be performed with laparoscopy. This reduces the pain, downtime, and risks for women who need surgical treatment.
