Minimally Invasive Surgery Q & A

What is minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery is a term used to describe surgical procedures that do not require a large incision and significant tissue displacement. In decades past, open surgery was the only available option, and virtually every surgical procedure carried a long risk of potential complications. 

Today, however, advancements in surgical technology have made it possible to perform many gynecologic procedures with just a few small incisions and slim surgical tools. These improvements have made it possible for women to receive the care they need without the risks associated with open surgical techniques. 

What are the benefits of minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery allows your gynecologist to alter or remove internal tissues without the need to create a large incision. This approach offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Less time under anesthesia
  • Speedy recovery
  • Less bleeding during surgery
  • Shorter procedure times
  • Less internal tissue displacement
  • Less noticeable scarring
  • Less expensive procedures
  • Less pain during recovery

There are cases when open surgery remains the best available option. But when minimally invasive techniques are possible, they are the preferred treatment approach. 

Is da Vinci® robotic surgery safe? 

New Beginnings OB/GYN is proud to offer the da Vinci robotic surgery platform, a system that enables gynecologists to perform precise surgical alterations without displacing significant tissue. This system has been in use for many years and has helped tens of thousands of women achieve outstanding surgical outcomes. 

When many people envision robotic surgery, they picture a blocky silver robot hovering over a patient holding sharp surgical tools. In reality, the da Vinci system is fully controlled by your gynecologist at all times. 

Your doctor is seated at a surgical console and uses high-definition 3D imaging to view your internal tissues in real-time. The surgical cart is positioned next to the treatment table and is equipped with surgical “arms” and state-of-the-art instruments.

Your surgeon controls these arms remotely, and the system allows a degree of precision and flexibility that even the most skilled human hand could never achieve. 

Laparoscopic surgery is another minimally invasive surgical approach. This option uses several small incisions and a surgical tube equipped with a light and camera to project images to an external screen while your surgeon performs the procedure using slim surgical instruments.
