Gynecologic surgery may be performed to correct a wide range of conditions, including cancer, endometriosis, fibroids, uterine prolapse, excessive bleeding and more, providing effective symptom relief and reduce the risk of serious complications associated with some of these conditions.
Many of today’s procedures take advantage of the latest, state-of-the-art technology to offer patients minimally invasive alternatives that involve shorter recovery times and less scarring. Laparoscopy is used in many gynecologic procedures, and involves inserting an endoscope and tiny surgical instruments into small, strategically-placed incisions.
It is a permanent procedure that cannot be reversed.
This procedure may be indicated in treatment of many different gynecologic conditions, including uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse, pelvic adhesions, chronic pain and more.
Hysterectomies can be performed through several different methods, depending on the initial reason and the personal health and preferences of the patient. Many hysterectomies can now be performed laparoscopically, which requires very small incisions. Laparoscopy can often be used during a vaginal hysterectomy, which generally has fewer complications and smaller scars, but cannot be used for certain patients. An open abdominal hysterectomy uses larger incisions but is needed in many cases.
We are proud to offer our patients the latest surgical treatments utilizing our doctors’ extensive experience and skills to provide the very best results.
Complex gynecological surgeries that once required large incisions and long recovery times are now being performed as simple minimally invasive procedures thanks to robotic assistance. This technology allows surgeons to perform their procedures virtually, by controlling the tiny and precise hands of a robotic device. Robotic-assisted surgery is performed with a device that guides surgeons through complex procedures with ease and safety.
Most procedures are performed through a few tiny incisions that surgical hands are inserted into. Your surgeon controls these hands with controls in the device while looking through a lens in the console that provides a three-dimensional, magnified view of the area. The robotic hands mimic the movements of the surgeon’s hands and will not move unless the surgeon is looking through the lens. It can be used for surgeries such as a hysterectomy, sacrocolpopexy or myomectomy, among others.
