Minimally Invasive Surgery Q & A

What Is Minimally Invasive Surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery is any procedure that can be completed through as small an incision as possible. Laparoscopic procedures are an excellent example of this type of surgery. Gynecologists can perform many different types of surgery on an outpatient basis because they no longer have to make a large incision to enter the abdominal cavity. Smaller, more precise incisions give them the room they need to perform any number of repairs, remove diseased tissue or restore proper function to a specific area. Minimally invasive procedures also take less time to heal and cause less trauma to the body.

What Are the Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery offers many benefits to patients who are set to undergo a reproductive procedure. While there is always a risk of infection, it is significantly less with a minimally invasive procedure. This type of procedure also heals much faster. Part of the reason for this is that there is much less damage to the tissues of the body, especially in the area where the procedure is being performed. Minimally invasive procedures also produce much less scarring and require fewer stitches, if any. Individuals who have a minimally invasive procedure performed are usually allowed to leave on an outpatient basis and return to their regular activities within a few days’ time.

When Is Minimally Invasive Surgery Not Recommended?

Minimally invasive surgeries are not recommended for individuals who are experiencing a multitude of symptoms. While the doctor may attempt to perform a less invasive procedure, the severity of a person’s condition may require a more extensive operation. Every situation is unique, and the extent of the procedure will always be determined by the condition of the patient at the time of surgery. Individuals who have had several surgeries prior to the one they are being prepared for may have massive amounts of scar tissue that prevent a minimally invasive procedure. It is extremely important that patients discuss their options with the doctor prior to going into surgery.
