Minimally invasive gynecological surgery is an advanced type of surgery that utilizes innovative tools and surgical techniques to perform necessary procedures without opening up your entire abdomen. There are many types of minimally invasive gynecological surgeries, including:
Laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery
During laparoscopic minimally invasive gynecological surgery, the team uses a laparoscope to assist in performing the procedure. A laparoscope is a thin flexible tube that contains a camera and a light.
The team inserts the laparoscope through a small incision made in your abdomen to view your reproductive organs. Then, they make additional incisions for the surgical instruments needed to perform the necessary procedure.
Robotic minimally invasive gynecological surgery combines laparoscopic surgical techniques with robotic technology. With robotic surgery, the team performs complex gynecological surgical procedures with accuracy and precision.
Vaginal minimally invasive surgery
Some gynecological surgical procedures are performed through the vagina, which is considered one of the most minimally invasive approaches.
