Minimally invasive and robotic surgery can be used to treat a range of gynecologic conditions and offers many benefits over traditional or open surgery, including reduced risk of complications, less postoperative pain, quicker recovery, shorter hospital stays, and minimal blood loss and scarring.
What is minimally invasive surgery?
Advances in technology now allow surgeons to operate using much smaller incisions than needed in traditional surgery and with less injury to the body. One of the first types of minimally invasive surgery techniques was laparoscopic surgery, which provides the surgeon with a view inside the body by inserting a thin tube with a camera attached through a small incision. Today, surgeons also use robotic surgery that provides even greater magnification and precision with miniaturized instruments and a 3D camera, yet also leaves only tiny cuts to heal.
