Women’s health is gradually taking a forefront in overall healthcare due to its importance in starting and maintaining families. Women’s reproductive systems require special attention as most people would like to have offspring, and women have a more primary role than men. Issues of the reproductive system are common, and various techniques and solutions are available to deal with them. McAllen minimally invasive surgery is an example of a popular treatment plan that encourages women’s gynecological health. More about the technique is highlighted below.
What is minimally invasive gynecologic surgery?
This operation involves making tiny cuts smaller than an inch while utilizing specialized instruments to do the surgery. This is usually done as an alternative to open surgery that has disadvantages like:
- Increased surgical risk
- Longer hospitalizations
- Longer recovery times
Some of the most common types of this surgery include:
This operation involves slender and tiny telescopes used to view the inside of the uterus. This is commonly done when you have unexplained bleeding in the uterus. Since this operation can be done without incisions, it can be utilized to deal with and identify causes of:
- Uterine pain
- Abnormal bleeding
- Intrauterine scar tissue
- Other structural issues in your uterus
This surgery can be specialized to treat these issues by eliminating polyps, fibroids, or scar tissues. An alternative to this procedure that gets rid of the issues mentioned earlier is endometrial ablation, especially for heavy menstrual bleeding.
This involves using a miniature telescope placed inside your skin via small cuts to check out your pelvic anatomy, including your ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus. This telescopic camera transmits images to a screen monitor to make it possible for your physician to see the pelvic structures and do complicated operations while harming the patient’s body as little as possible. This can also be applied through the use of robotic instrumentation.
This surgery is suitable to identify and deal with various medical conditions such as:
- Pelvic pain
- Uterine fibroids
- Scar tissue
- Ovarian cysts
This procedure can also safely eliminate ovaries through oophorectomy or the uterus.
This is achieved through the use of miniature robots as compared to bulky instruments used in laparoscopic surgery. This dramatically increases the surgeon’s accuracy and precision, reducing the risk of trauma to tissues.
This is one of the least invasive techniques as it avoids incisions on your abdomen while still giving all recovery advantages of other minimally invasive methods.
Surgeons can do some other outpatient minimally invasive procedures like:
- Cervical loop electrode excision and conisation
- Endometrial ablation
- CO-2 laser treatments for lower genital tract dysplasia
- Laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation
- Hysteroscopic sterilization
- Treatment of uterine fibroids through magnetic resonance-focused ultrasound
- Treatment of ectopic pregnancy
- Surgical management of congenital anomalies
- Surgical management of incomplete or missed abortion
This surgery is a fundamental advancement in operations as they are made more effective with minimized recovery and intrusion. For further questions about this surgery, check our website, or call our offices in McAllen, TX.
