Thanks to modern advances in technology and ongoing research in surgery, many gynecological surgical procedures can now be performed in a minimally invasive manner, meaning incisions are smaller and recovery may be quicker. Minimally invasive surgery (robotic and advanced laparoscopic surgery) allows surgeons to perform the same procedures traditionally done through a 8 to 10 inch incision through 4 or 5 1-cm cuts. As a result, most patients can experience:
The following procedures are used to treat endometriosis, congenital abnormalities, pelvic adhesions, pelvic pain, fibroids, 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.
This form of minimally invasive surgery uses a laparoscope to view inside the abdomen and pelvis. The laparoscope allows surgeons to perform procedures without making major incisions that can lead to long recovery times. Common laparoscopic procedures include tubal repair, ovarian cystectomy, lysis of adhesions, and treatment of endometriosis.
Gynecological conditions are increasingly being treated with robotic surgery at New York Hospital Queens. A surgeon controls robotic and computer technologies that translate hand movements into precise micro-movements of the surgical instruments.
