Minimally Invasive Surgery Q & A

What are Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgeries?

At the Avery Center, the board-certified physicians perform a variety of minimally invasive procedures. With specialties ranging from laparoscopic tubal ligation to cosmetic reconstruction, you always get an OB/GYN with expertise in the surgery you need, including:

  • Endometrial ablation
  • Tubal sterilization
  • Hysteroscopy
  • LEEP and cone procedures for cervical abnormalities
  • Sacrocolpopexy
  • Labiaplasty

In some cases, your OB/GYN may use the da Vinci Surgical System, a minimally invasive robotic approach to surgery.

What is the da Vinci Surgical System?

The da Vinci Surgical System uses cutting-edge technology to allow your doctor to perform complex surgical procedures through just a few small incisions. From a seated position, your OB/GYN uses a robotic device that mimics the movements of their hands, wrists, and fingers, all while viewing the surgical area on a high-definition 3D screen.

With this innovative equipment, your OB/GYN controls every surgical maneuver. You never have to worry about independent robotic movements, as the system has multiple safety checks in place.

What are the Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgeries?

When you need gynecological surgery, there are multiple benefits of opting for a minimally invasive procedure over traditional surgical options.

Because these surgeries use small incisions, they're safer than large, across-body cuts. Also, during these surgeries, you lose significantly less blood and there’s less trauma to your body.

Most incisions require only one or two stitches, so you have less scarring. You also get a faster recovery. Traditional gynecological surgeries have a 6-8 week recovery period, while patients typical recovery from minimally invasive procedures at the Avery Center in about two weeks.

Most of your OB/GYN’s surgeries are outpatient procedures, and they can do them at the Avery Center’s surgical suite, which means no more long hospital stays.

With these benefits, there’s no reason not to opt for minimally invasive surgery. Book your appointment online or call the Avery Center to schedule.
