Thanks to modern advances in technology and ongoing research in surgery, many gynecologic surgical procedures can now be performed in a minimally invasive manner, meaning incisions are smaller and recovery is quicker. Minimally invasive surgery (robotic and advanced laparoscopic surgery) allows surgeons to perform the same procedures traditionally done through 10-inch incision through a few small 0.4-inch incisions. As a result, most patients will experience:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss and need for transfusion
  • Less risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
  • Better cosmetic results with small incisions for minimal scarring
  • Better outcomes and patient satisfaction, in many cases

Gynecologic Procedures
The following procedures are used to treat endometriosis, adenomyosis, pelvic adhesions, pelvic pain, fibroids, ovarian cysts, abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic organs prolapse, congenital abnormalities and other diagnoses.

This surgical procedure uses a slender, light-transmitting telescope, called a hysterscope, to view and operate inside the uterus. The purpose is to create a uterine cavity best suited for embryo transplantation and/or pregnancy and remove any lesions within the uterine cavity.

This form of minimally invasive surgery uses a light-transmitting telescope, called laparoscope to view inside the abdomen and pelvis. The laparoscope allows surgeons to perform procedures without making major incisions that can lead to prolonged recovery times. Common laparoscopic procedures include tubal sterilization, ovarian cystectomy, hysterectomy, lysis of adhesions, treatment of endometriosis and adenomyosis as well as pelvic organ prolapse.  

Robotic Surgery
Gynecologic conditions are often treated with robotic surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens. A surgeon controls the robot and computer enhanced technologies that translate hand movements into precise micro-movements of the surgical instruments.
