Minimally Invasive Surgery

 

Alternatives to major surgeries allow us to offer the latest state-of-the-art techniques to minimally invasive surgeries that can be comfortably and confidentially performed on an outpatient basis or in the office. We also offer state of the art robot assisted surgery with less pain, less scarring, and quicker recovery time.

The following specialized surgeries are available for our patients:

    • Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

    • Laparoscopic Removal Of Benign Gynecological Tumors

    • Laparoscopic Removal Of Malignant Gynecological Tumors

    • Laparoscopic Myomectomy (Removal Of Uterine Fibroids)

    • Laparoscopic Repair Of Pelvic Organ Prolapse

    • Laparoscopic Repair Of Pelvic Organ Prolapse With Uterine Preservation

    • Laparoscopic Excision Of Endometriosis

 These surgeries are minimally invasive treatments for the following conditions:

    • Uterine Cancer

    • Cervical Cancer

    • Endometriosis

    • Benign Gynecological Tumors

    • Uterine Prolapse

Safer Alternative: Minimally Invasive Surgery

One of the main priorities is to provide a safer alternative to traditional open surgery by using a minimally invasive approach when indicated and whenever possible based on the disease we are treating, the patients’ anatomy, and the patients’ overall medical condition. This offers the following benefits to our patients:

    • Faster Recovery

    • Less Pain

    • Smaller Incisions

    • Early Return To Normal Activities

    • Shorter Hospital Stay

    • Decreased Risk Of Infection

Robotic Assisted Surgery

    • With the surgical robot, small incisions are used to introduce miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. Seated comfortably at the console, your surgeon views a magnified, high-resolution 3D image of the surgical site.

    • At the same time, state-of-the-art robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate your surgeon's hand movements into precise micro-movements of the instruments.

    • The system cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. Rather, it requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon.
