One of the greatest advances in OBGYN care is minimally invasive gynecological surgery, also called laparoscopic surgery, which is available at South Lake OB/GYN and Advanced Surgery. Our goal is to make every patient’s experience at South Lake as comfortable and pleasant as possible, and minimally invasive gynecological surgery ensures we can provide what we promise.
What are the Benefits of Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery?
Through a variety of surgical techniques, our doctors can produce the same result as open surgery while causing less injury and reducing recovery time for our patients. Not only are these techniques safer, but they also allow our patients to experience less scaring without the side effects that often occur with open surgery. Minimally invasive surgery rarely requires an overnight stay at the hospital and gets you back on your feet as quickly as possible.
The Types of Outpatient Surgery We Offer
Robotic technology is sometimes employed to provide our surgeons with a magnified 3D view of the surgical site. This allows for greater precision, control, and flexibility. Minimally invasive gynecological surgery offers women innovative options when treatment is required for conditions such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and ovarian cysts. Should you be suffering from cancer, there are a number of minimally invasive surgical options available, including:
Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT)
IORT is used to treat advanced cases of cancer that have not migrated from the tumor’s original site when patients sometimes have no other treatment options. IORT equipment can be brought directly into the operating room so that doctors can administer a high dose of radiation directly to the site of the cancer during surgery.
This allows for the direct delivery of chemotherapy in the case of ovarian cancer. The National Cancer Institute has published reports that provide research that shows intraperitoneal chemotherapy offers more successful results than intravenous chemotherapy alone.
The greatest advantage of all of these procedures is that they allow our patients to experience minimal discomfort while getting on with the life they love.
