Minimally Invasive Surgery Q & A

What is minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery is an alternative to open surgery. Unlike its more traditional counterpart, minimally invasive surgery uses special instruments, and sometimes robotic technology, to make small incisions, often resulting in minimal scars and shorter recovery times. 

Minimally invasive surgery can address many of the same women's health conditions as open surgery, including fibroids and endometriosis.


Why should I have minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery offers several advantages, including shorter recovery times than open surgery. Minimally invasive procedures also tend to also minimize blood loss and reduce your risk of infection when compared to open surgery. 

You typically experience less pain after minimally invasive surgery. As a result, you may not need opioid pain relievers, which helps to avoid the potential side effects of these powerful medications.


What are the types of minimally invasive surgery?

The skilled team at Elite Women's Care offers a number of minimally invasive procedures. This includes:

Laparoscopy

Laparoscopy is a procedure that involves a slim viewing tube called a laparoscope. Your practitioner inserts the device through a small incision in your abdomen to see and treat conditions affecting your reproductive organs.

Hysteroscopy

A hysteroscope is a narrow device inserted via your vagina to see your reproductive organs and perform minimally invasive surgery with separate instruments. This minimally invasive treatment can address heavy bleeding and remove growths.

da Vinci robotic surgery

Robotic technology offers a minimally invasive way to perform surgery without large incisions. The team at Elite Women's Care performs robot-assisted surgeries through a few tiny incisions or a single small incision near your belly button. The doctor is in full control of the robotic arms and instruments that perform the precise surgery.

Endometrial ablation

Endometrial ablation is an outpatient treatment to eliminate your endometrium when it’s the source of heavy bleeding. This minimally invasive procedure may lighten your period, or you may stop having a period entirely after your treatment.

However, endometrial ablation may not be the right procedure if you’d still like to have children due to an increased risk of pregnancy complications. During your consultation, your practitioner at Elite Women's Care explains the pros and cons of this treatment to help you make the best decision for you and your family.
