What is Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) ?
Laparoscopic or Robotic surgery are minimally invasive surgical techniques using several small 0.5-1 cm incisions in the abdomen in which short, narrow tubes (trochars) are inserted in the abdomen along with a camera or laparoscope. This allows the Gyn surgeon to visualize the abdominal and pelvic organs, diagnose certain conditions, and perform various surgical procedures.
We perform the following MIS procedures:
- Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus, fallopian tubes and sometimes ovaries)
- Myomectomy (removal of fibroids)
- Ovarian Cystectomy (removal of ovarian cysts)
- Oophorectomy (removal of ovaries)
- Tubal Ligation (interruption of fallopian tubes for pregnancy prevention)
- Endometriosis diagnosis and treatment
Benefits of MIS include:
- Less postoperative pain
- Quicker recovery time
- Shorter hospital stays
- Smaller scars
- Earlier return to full activities
Open Surgeries: Abdominal Hysterectomy and Abdominal Myomectomy are performed thru a small horizontal bikini incision and rarely if necessary a midline vertical incision.
It is best to discuss the various surgical approaches and techniques with your Gyn Surgeon to decide what is appropriate for you and your specific condition.
Endometrial Ablation is an outpatient procedure that removes or destroys the endometrial layers. Various devices are used including high-energy radiofrequencies, heated fluids, extreme cold, or microwave energy. The procedure is performed to reduce heavy menstrual bleeding and in many cases is an effective alternative to more invasive surgical treatments.
Operative Hysteroscopy Resection of Polyps and Submucosal Myomas
One of the most common outpatient procedures in Gynecology the Operative Hysteroscopy is done to visualize inside the uterine cavity and remove polyps and submucous myomas (myomas abutting the lining of the uterus or entirely in the cavity). Also done in cases of heavy or irregular bleeding and to exclude pre-cancerous or cancerous abnormalities.
