Minimally invasive surgery allows your physician to complete operations through a couple of small incisions instead of making a large cut in your body. The team at Lucina Women's Health and Midwifery use laparoscopy to perform a wide range of gynecological procedures. They also offer transvaginal procedures, which allow them to complete the operation through your vagina, requiring no incisions.
After a thorough consultation and exam at Lucina Women's Health and Midwifery, your physician might recommend a minimally invasive surgery such as:
During a laparoscopic hysterectomy, your physician removes your uterus, and if necessary, your ovaries, fallopian tubes, and cervix. You might need a hysterectomy if you have severe endometriosis, fibroids, abnormal bleeding, or uterine cancer.
Your doctor uses minimally invasive surgery to remove uterine fibroids during a myomectomy. Fibroids can cause pelvic pain, abnormal periods, and interfere with your fertility. The team also offers minimally invasive MyoSure® myomectomy procedures.
If you have heavy periods that affect your overall health and interfere with your life, your doctor might recommend minimally invasive endometrial ablation to remove your endometrial lining. The team at Lucina Women's Health and Midwifery offers the NovaSure® endometrial ablation treatment.
If you have severe or disruptive ovarian cysts, your doctor can use minimally invasive surgical techniques to remove the cysts.
If you experience a prolapsed pelvic organ, like your uterus, rectum, or bladder, your physician might suggest surgery to repair the prolapse and restore your health. A prolapse occurs when an organ slides out of place and bulges into your vaginal canal.
The team at Lucina Women's Health and Midwifery also offers tubal ligation procedures for women who have completed their family and are looking for permanent contraception. Tubal ligation severs or creates scar tissue to block your fallopian tubes, preventing eggs from reaching your womb.
Minimally invasive surgery provides several advantages. In many cases, minimally invasive procedures, such as laparoscopy, are outpatient, so you can go home to recover in the comfort of your own home instead of spending days in the hospital. The procedures also usually have a shorter recovery time than traditional surgeries and reduced risks of scarring and infection.
