Minimally invasive surgery, including robotic surgery, is the preferred surgical approach for many conditions. Unlike open surgery, which usually requires a long incision, minimally invasive procedures are different because they:

  • Are less complicated
  • Involve smaller incisions (dime size)
  • Incur less trauma on the body
  • Involve faster healing
  • Can have better outcomes

Advanced Surgical Care

Although minimally invasive (laparoscopic) techniques vary, this type of surgery usually involves a surgeon inserting an endoscope, a long thin tube with a lighted camera at its tip, through a small incision. The camera sends a two-dimensional image of the surgical site to a high-definition monitor which the surgeon watches during the operation.

Minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries are available for the following conditions:

  • Abnormal or heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Cancer
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibroids
  • Hysterectomy
  • Incontinence
  • Infertility
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Pelvic pain
  • Sterilization
  • Fertility treatments
