What is Minimally Invasive Surgery?

What is Minimally
Invasive Surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery is defined as surgery that’s performed using very small incisions. You may need one or several incisions, depending on the procedure, but they’re all shorter than one-half inch. To perform minimally invasive surgery, we use instruments, such as an endoscope or laparoscope, and place them through these small surgical sites. We can then use these tools from outside your body to precisely manipulate while viewing a monitor showing a magnified image from inside your body.

What Procedures do Gynecologists Perform During Minimally
Invasive Surgery?

Most open surgeries can now be performed by minimally invasive technique, including:

  • Cystectomy – removal of ovarian and fallopian tube cysts
  • Hysterectomy – removal of the uterus and sometimes other reproductive organs
  • Endometrial ablation – to stop heavy bleeding
  • Myomectomy – removal of fibroids without removing the uterus
  • Tubal ligations – removal of the fallopian tubes in order to permanently prevent pregnancy
  • Diagnostic evaluation for inflammation, polyps, fibroids, endometriosis, and tumors.

What are the Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery?

  • Small incisions cause less trauma than one long, open incision.
  • Less postoperative pain
  • Less Bleeding
  • Less Scarring
  • Fewer complications
  • Faster recovery, allowing patients earlier return to normal activities
