Minimally Invasive Surgery Q & A

What is minimally invasive gynecologic surgery?

  • Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery uses small incisions and specialized tools to diagnose and treat various women's health conditions. Instead of large cuts, surgeons use cameras and tiny instruments for less scarring, faster recovery, and reduced pain.

What can minimally invasive surgery treat?

  • Doctors use minimally invasive surgery for many gynecological conditions, including:
    • Fibroids
    • Endometriosis
    • Ovarian cysts
    • Heavy or irregular periods
    • Pelvic pain

What are common minimally invasive surgery procedures?

  • Common procedures include:
    • Hysterectomy (uterus removal)
    • Removal of ovaries or fallopian tubes
    • Fibroid, polyp, or cyst removal
    • Endometrial ablation (to reduce heavy bleeding)
    • Sterilization (permanent birth control)

What are the benefits of minimally invasive surgery?

  • Compared to traditional surgery, benefits include:
    • Smaller incisions and less scarring
    • Less pain and reduced need for pain medication
    • Faster recovery times
    • Often outpatient procedures (no hospital stay needed)

What is hysteroscopy?

  • Hysteroscopy is a procedure where your doctor uses a thin, lighted tube (hysteroscope) with a camera to examine the inside of your uterus. It helps diagnose and treat conditions like abnormal bleeding, fibroids, and issues that might cause repeated miscarriages.
