The gynecologists at Red Rock OB/GYN perform a range of different surgeries, from minimally invasive investigative procedures to major surgery. You gynecologist always discusses your treatment options with you so you know what to expect and, where possible, advises the least invasive treatment methods before considering surgical intervention.
Minimally invasive gynecological surgery aims to eliminate extensive surgical incisions in patients who need an operation. Most minimally invasive gynecological surgeries involve the use of a laparoscope, which is a flexible tube your surgeon passes through small incisions or natural openings, such as your vagina.
The laparoscope has a miniaturized camera at the end that sends images back to a screen so your OB/GYN sees your internal organs in detail. She uses the images to perform precision surgery with instruments passed through the laparoscope. Minimally invasive procedures an OB/GYN performs include:
Developments in endoscopic technology enable surgeons to perform more procedures using minimally invasive techniques. Your surgeon at Red Rock OB/GYN uses the most technologically advanced methods to perform your surgery.
Your OB/GYN treats many gynecological conditions using minimally invasive techniques, including:
Surgeons also perform vaginal reconstruction procedures using minimally invasive techniques.
Although your OB/GYN uses minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, in some cases open surgery is the best option. Possible reasons for having major surgery include:
Your OB/GYN may recommend open surgery when there isn’t sufficient space to operate using a laparoscope or if there are concerns about the possibility of malignancy.
