Laparoscopic Surgery Q & A

What is laparoscopic surgery?

Laparoscopic surgery at Surgery of Tomorrow, LLC, is a type of minimally invasive procedure that helps detect or treat gynecological conditions to prevent possible complications. Laparoscopic surgery causes little postoperative discomfort with minimal recovery time. 

Your surgeon uses a tiny device called a laparoscope with a camera attached to it, to get a better view of the inside of your reproductive organs and complete minimally invasive procedures with optimal precision.

What are the benefits of laparoscopic surgery?

Some of the many benefits associated with laparoscopy surgery versus traditional open gynecological surgery include:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Shorter recovery times
  • Less pain
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Less scarring
  • Less bleeding

The Surgery of Tomorrow, LLC, team uses the latest advances in laparoscopic technology and techniques to give you the best outcome.

Why might I need laparoscopic surgery?

You may require laparoscopic surgery for numerous reasons. Your surgeon might recommend it to remove:

  • Uterine fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Cancerous tissue
  • Ovaries
  • Endometriosis implants
  • Uterus during laparoscopic hysterectomy

Laparoscopic surgery can also repair pelvic organ prolapse, reconstruct your vagina or other reproductive organs, and tie your tubes to prevent pregnancy.

How should I prepare for laparoscopic surgery?

To prepare for laparoscopic surgery at Surgery of Tomorrow, LLC, follow all of your pre-surgery instructions. Arrange for someone to drive you home and stop taking certain medications if your surgeon recommends it. Don’t eat or drink anything the morning of your scheduled surgery.

What should I expect during the procedure?

Just before laparoscopic surgery, you receive general anesthesia to put you to sleep, so you don’t feel any pain. Once you’re asleep, your surgeon makes tiny incisions near your lower abdomen and inserts a laparoscope into the area to assist with your surgery. 

The length of time surgery lasts depends on the type of procedure you undergo. Many laparoscopic surgeries last about 30-60 minutes or longer. Afterward, your surgeon closes the incisions, which leave minimal to no scarring.

What happens after laparoscopic surgery?

After laparoscopic surgery, you recover in a separate room until the anesthesia wears off. You can usually go home the same day of surgery but must have a friend or family member drive you there.

Follow all post-surgery instructions and take medications as prescribed. You can resume many normal daily activities soon after surgery, but avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting until your doctor gives you the okay.
