Minimally invasive surgery is a type of surgery that uses special surgical tools and techniques that limit trauma to your body.
Traditional open surgery for gynecological conditions requires a large incision through your abdomen to access your reproductive organs and perform the necessary procedure.
With minimally invasive surgery, the experts at Bestcare OB/GYN use special surgical tools and small incisions to perform the procedure. Minimally invasive surgery causes less damage to your body, which means less postsurgical pain and a faster recovery.
Bestcare OB/GYN is a state-of-the-art women’s health practice. The experienced providers use many tools and techniques to perform minimally invasive surgery. Types of minimally invasive surgery may include laparoscopic or robot-assisted surgery or hysteroscopy.
During laparoscopic surgery, your surgeon makes a small incision in your abdomen to insert a laparoscope. The laparoscope is a thin, flexible tube outfitted with a light and camera, which provides detailed images of your internal organs on a computer screen.
Your surgeon uses the images to diagnose your gynecological condition. Then, they make additional incisions to insert the surgical instruments needed to perform your surgery.
Robot-assisted surgery combines advanced robotic technology with minimally invasive surgical techniques. Bestcare OB/GYN uses the da Vinci surgical system to perform robotic surgery.
With robotic surgery, the surgeons can perform complex gynecological procedures with greater precision.
A hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that allows your provider to examine your uterus using a hysteroscope, which is a thin, lighted tube with a camera.
Your provider performs a hysteroscopy to diagnose problems in your uterus and treat them using small surgical instruments inserted into your uterus through your vagina.
