Minimally Invasive Surgery Q & A

What is minimally invasive surgery?

The physicians at the Center for Women’s Health use minimally invasive surgery to correct problems in reproductive organs. In the past, surgical procedures required large incisions and resulted in a long recovery, blood loss, and a high risk of complications. 

With minimally invasive surgical techniques, surgery is performed with small tools that lead to smaller incisions and faster recovery times without sacrificing quality surgical outcomes. 

What minimally invasive surgical procedures are offered in-office?

Your doctor at the Center for Women’s Health provides the following minimally invasive procedures in-office:

  • Novasure®
  • Endometrial biopsy

An in-office procedure saves you time and ensures your comfort. You are in familiar surroundings and supported by compassionate staff members for the entire pre- and postsurgical process.

What minimally invasive procedures are scheduled in the operating room?

Though some procedures are minimally invasive, they are best performed at a surgical site. These include:

  • Laparoscopic hysterectomy (including supracervical and total)
  • Vaginal hysterectomy and pelvic floor repair
  • Laparoscopic ovarian cyst and ovary removal
  • Bilateral tubal ligation
  • Diagnostic laparoscopy

If you require any of these surgeries, your practitioner gives you thorough pre-operative instructions and details on what to expect before, during, and after surgery. 

What is laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy uses a slim surgical tool called a laparoscope, which is fitted with a light and telescope. The laparoscope is inserted through very small incisions to gain access to the organ to be operated on. 

The laparoscope sends real-time imaging of your internal organs and tissues to a monitor. Your surgeon is able to “see” the surgical site on a screen and can perform procedures using special miniaturized instruments. 

Laparoscopy is also a powerful diagnostic tool and can provide visual confirmation of uterine fibroids or endometriosis.
