Minimally Invasive Surgery

Although laparoscopic surgeries to remove ovarian masses or cysts have been around for sometime, new technology has allowed us to perform procedures such as hysterectomies laparoscopically. Minimally invasive surgery is term used for surgeries done through small incisions.

Traditionally done through larger open openings, many procedures can now be done through incisions about one cm in size. This kind of surgery not only delivers better cosmetic results, but also reduces recovery time, reduces pain and reduces scarring. Most procedures done this way can allow for you to go home the same day, and patients can return to work in half the time of open procedures.
