Minimally Invasive Surgery
Women facing gynecologic surgery often want to avoid the large incision and long recovery associated with traditional open surgery. Fortunately, there are minimally invasive options for many women who need gynecologic surgery.
The most common minimally invasive surgery is laparoscopy. Instead of a large open incision, surgery is done through a few small incisions using a tiny camera and long, thin surgical instruments. The camera takes images inside your body and those images are sent to a video monitor in the operating room. The monitor guides surgeons as they operate.
da Vinci® Surgery
da Vinci Surgery is another minimally invasive surgical option for many patients. With da Vinci, surgeons operate through a few small incisions - similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables surgeons to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
