Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Q & A

What is minimally invasive gynecologic surgery?

Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery at Surgery of Tomorrow, LLC, uses advanced surgical techniques to remove or repair reproductive tissue or organs when you have a gynecological problem. Minimally invasive surgery can help your provider diagnose and treat certain conditions or offer you permanent birth control.

What are the different types of minimally invasive surgery?

Examples of minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries your gynecologist might recommend include:

  • Hysteroscopic surgery - uses a thin, lighted tube and vaginal approach without incisions
  • Advanced laparoscopic surgery - uses tiny incisions with minimal recovery time
  • Vaginal surgery - doesn’t require any abdominal incisions
  • Endometrial ablation - destroys the uterine lining without any incisions

Your surgeon discusses the risks and benefits of each type of minimally invasive surgery to determine which one is right for you.

Is minimally invasive surgery right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, your specialist discusses your medical history and asks about symptoms and your desire to have children in the future.

They complete a pelvic examination and might recommend you undergo blood tests, ultrasound, other imaging procedures, biopsies, or other tests to diagnose your condition. You might be a good candidate for minimally invasive gynecologic surgery if you have:

  • Gynecological cancer
  • Uterine fibroids or ovarian cysts
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Heavy uterine bleeding
  • Pelvic pain
  • Infertility 
  • Congenital anomalies
  • Incontinence
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)

You might opt for minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, such as hysterectomy or tubal ligation, if you desire a permanent form of birth control, or endometrial ablation for lighter periods.

How should I prepare for surgery?

Prior to minimally invasive surgery at Surgery of Tomorrow, LLC, follow your provider’s pre-surgery instructions. Make arrangements for a friend or family member to drive you home and stop taking certain medicines if your surgeon recommends it. They might ask you not to eat or drink anything the morning of the procedure.

What should I expect during minimally invasive surgery?

Just before minimally invasive surgery, you receive general anesthesia to put you to sleep or regional or local anesthesia. Either way, you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. 

Your surgeon gains access to reproductive organs through your vagina or by making tiny incisions in your lower abdominal area. They complete the procedure using advanced technology and techniques to achieve optimal precision and accuracy.

What happens after the procedure?

After minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, you go home the same day. Take medications as prescribed and get plenty of rest. Avoid strenuous activity until your surgeon gives you the okay and attend follow-up appointments as needed.
