Minimally Invasive Surgery Q&A

What is minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery is an advanced surgical technique in which surgeons perform procedures through tiny incisions. 

With traditional open surgery, your surgeon makes a large incision, cutting through your skin, fat, and muscle to gain access to the organ undergoing surgery. This surgical technique damages healthy parts of the body and requires a long recovery time.

By comparison, minimally invasive surgery uses small incisions, causing significantly less damage and reducing your post-surgical pain and recovery time. 

Health Solutions is an innovative obstetrics and gynecology practice that offers minimally invasive surgery to treat gynecological conditions. 

What are the types of minimally invasive surgery?

The team at Health Solutions uses many minimally invasive surgery tools and techniques. Some of the types of surgery include:

NovaSure®

NovaSure is a minimally invasive procedure the team performs at the office. They may recommend this procedure to treat heavy menstrual bleeding in women with no future plans for pregnancy. 

During this procedure, the team uses heat energy to destroy the endometrial lining of the uterus, reducing heavy menstrual bleeding. Because NovaSure destroys the endometrial lining, pregnancy is impossible following the procedure.

Hysteroscopic surgery

During hysteroscopic surgery, the team performs procedures through your uterus instead of your abdomen. The team uses MyoSure® to perform a minimally invasive myomectomy when removing fibroids and polyps.

Laparoscopic surgery

For laparoscopic surgery, the team makes a small incision to insert a laparoscope, a thin flexible tube with a light and camera. The laparoscope allows your surgeon to see your organs without needing a large open incision.

They make additional small incisions to insert the surgical instruments they need to perform the procedure. 

Robotic surgery

Robotic surgery is the most advanced minimally invasive surgical technique. For this type of surgery, the team uses robotic technology and laparoscopic tools to perform procedures using smaller incisions and greater flexibility. 

The Health Solutions team uses the da Vinci® Surgical System for robotic surgery. 

Am I a candidate for minimally invasive surgery?

The team at Health Solutions determines if you’re a candidate for minimally invasive surgery after a consultation. They only recommend surgery when medical interventions fail to improve your gynecological condition. 

In most cases, the team can use minimally invasive techniques for those who need surgery. However, they customize surgery so you get the best possible outcomes. For some people, traditional open surgery makes the better choice.
