Surgery Q & A
What is minimally invasive surgery?
Minimally invasive surgery addresses many of the same women’s health conditions as open surgery, including uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and ovarian cysts. A minimally invasive approach, however, involves smaller incisions and special instruments to make for less trauma to the area.
What are the benefits of minimally invasive surgery?
Minimally invasive surgery has several advantages over traditional open surgery. Open surgeries can be painful, cause scarring, and have lengthy recovery time.
The benefits of minimally invasive surgery include:
- Shorter recovery times
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications and infections
- Shorter hospital stays
- Less need for postoperative pain medications, such as opioids
Most women experience less pain after minimally invasive surgery as compared to open surgery. As an added benefit, some forms of minimally invasive surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you can go home the same day.
What gynecological issues require minimally invasive surgery?
A number of gynecological issues can arise at any point in your life that require minimally invasive surgery. These include:
- Abnormal bleeding
- Uterine fibroids
- Pelvic pain
- Ovarian cysts
- Complications from menopause
When these symptoms seriously affect your quality of life and fail to resolve with conservative treatment methods, minimally invasive surgery may be your best treatment option. Discuss your symptoms and potential treatments with the team at Midatlantic OBGYN.
What types of minimally invasive surgery are available?
