Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialty Training
Minimally Invasive Surgery, Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery
Minimally invasive surgery (sometimes called laparoscopic surgery) is done through small incisions. Using specialized techniques, miniature cameras with microscopes, tiny fiber-optic flashlights and high definition monitors, Women’s Health and Surgery Center surgeons perform surgery through an incision requiring only a stitch or two. The surgeons of Women’s Health and Surgery Center perform more laparoscopic gynecological surgeries than any other practice in the region.
For patients, minimally invasive surgery means less trauma to the body, less blood loss, smaller surgical scars and less need for pain medication. Patients leave the hospital sooner after minimally invasive surgery and return to normal activities sooner than with conventional open surgery. Minimally invasive surgery is performed both on an inpatient (stay in the hospital) and outpatient (go home the same day) basis.
