Minimally Invasive Surgery Q & A

What is minimally invasive gynecologic surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery is procedures than result in minimal scarring, less pain, and shorter recovery times when compared to traditional surgery. These groundbreaking procedures also carry a lower risk of infection after your surgery, as they require smaller incisions. 

Minimally invasive procedures are often recommended if you suffer from gynecologic conditions that require surgery. If you need gynecologic surgery, talk to the Manhattan Women’s Health or Tribeca Women’s Health team about your minimally invasive options.

Which gynecologic conditions can minimally invasive surgery treat?

Minimally invasive surgery can treat a number of gynecologic conditions, including:

  • Uterine fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Polyps
  • Endometriosis
  • Postmenopausal bleeding
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)

With less blood loss and scarring, shorter recovery times, and far shorter hospital stays than traditional surgery, you can return to your day-to-day activities sooner than ever before thanks to minimally invasive surgery.

Which minimally invasive surgeries are available?

Manhattan Women’s Health and Tribeca Women’s Health offer a wide range of minimally invasive gynecologic procedures, including:

Hysteroscopy

An operative hysteroscopy removes small noncancerous fibroids and polyps from the uterus. It can also be used to help diagnose the cause of abnormal or heavy menstrual bleeding.

Laparoscopic Oophorectomy

The Manhattan Women’s Health and Tribeca Women’s Health teams use a laparoscopic oophorectomy to remove one or both of the ovaries. A laparoscopic oophorectomy is recommended to treat endometriosis, twisted ovaries, an ovarian abscess, ovarian cysts, or ovarian cancer.

Ovarian Cystectomy

An ovarian cystectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that removes ovarian cysts. Unlike traditional surgery, an ovarian cystectomy requires only a few small incisions in the lower abdomen.

Laparoscopic hysterectomy

A laparoscopic hysterectomy is a minimally invasive alternative to a traditional hysterectomy. The team makes a very small incision in the belly button and inserts a tiny camera to remove the uterus. With less blood loss than traditional surgery and a one to two-week recovery period, this procedure offers many benefits.

Depending on the type of surgery you need, the Manhattan Women’s Health and Tribeca Women’s Health teams give you detailed instructions on how to prepare for your procedure. For more information on your minimally invasive options, call or schedule an appointment online.
