Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Treatment Options

Minimally Invasive Surgery is any procedure that is considered less invasive than open (traditional) surgery and results in minimal scarring, less pain and quicker return to normal activities. Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is also known as laparoscopic surgery.

Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery, is a surgical technique that is performed through small incisions, using the assistance of a video camera illuminating the surgical field within the body.

Benefits of Laparoscopy:

  • Smaller incision
  • Lower costs
  • Faster recovery
  • May not require an overnight stay at the hospital

The most advanced type of minimally invasive surgery is robotic surgery.
