Minimally invasive/Laparoscopic surgeries are the advancements in surgical procedures, wherein several procedures can now be performed with keyhole or minimally invasive methods. These procedures make it much easier for the patients, put them under much less trauma and make return-to-work that much faster.
With quick quicker periods and have fewer post-surgical incision scars on the body, minimally invasive procedures are now preferred both by the doctors and patients alike. Under gynaecology procedures, several critical procedures are now performed via the laparoscopic method.
Some of the common minimally invasive gynecology surgeries include:
- Diagnostic laparoscopy
- Laparoscopic adhesiolysis
- Laparoscopic ovarian drilling
- Total lap hysterectomy
- Lap ovarian cystectomy
- Hysteroscopic procedures
- Endometrial ablation
- Radical hysterectomy
- Vaginal hysterectomy
- Laparoscopic salpingectomy
Advantages of laparoscopic procedures:
- Reduced blood loss
- No excessive scars
- Quicker healing
- Reduced trauma
- Fewer post-surgery complications
Minimally invasive surgical procedures are now widely practiced and performed as the gold standard of care. Open surgeries are no longer necessary, and advancements in medical science allow for doctors to employ robotic arms to perform complex surgical procedures via small keyhole incisions.
