Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Q & A


Q & A

What is minimally invasive gynecologic surgery?

Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery uses very small incisions, or none at all, to repair or remove parts of your sexual and reproductive system. 

Some minimally invasive surgeries use small incisions in the lower abdomen along with a lighted camera called a laparoscope. This allows your surgeon to see inside the pelvis without an open incision. 

Other minimally invasive surgeries use a technique called hysteroscopy. Rather than inserting a scope and tools through incisions, hysteroscopy involves performing procedures in the uterus through the vagina and cervix. 

Like a laparoscope, a hysteroscope has a camera and light and projects a real-time image to a nearby monitor. 

Dr. Moyers also uses the daVinci® robotic surgery system to perform many surgeries with the assistance of a robot, augmenting her abilities to make precise repairs. 

 

What are the benefits of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery?

Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery allows you to undergo operations that would otherwise require large incisions, meaning much more tissue damage, to treat conditions or make repairs. 

With minimally invasive techniques like hysterectomy and laparoscopy, you can enjoy:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Minimal or no scars
  • Less postoperative pain
  • Less bleeding
  • No hospital stay
  • Faster recovery
  • Less risk of infection and other possible complications

At Sky Women’s Health, Dr. Moyers gives you all of the details of your minimally invasive gynecologic surgery ahead of time, including what to expect for the recovery and how to prepare ahead of time. 

By adhering to her instructions, you have the best possible chance at a seamless surgery and recovery.

 

When do I need minimally invasive gynecologic surgery?

There are many minimally invasive surgeries you can get at Sky Women’s Health to treat various gynecologic conditions. After assessing your condition and making a diagnosis, Dr. Moyers typically starts with noninvasive or conservative treatments first. 

If you don’t experience significant improvements without surgery, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery may be the next step. Dr. Moyers uses minimally invasive surgeries to treat:

  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Pelvic adhesions
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Uterine polyps
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease

In some cases, Dr. Moyers uses laparoscopy and hysteroscopy for diagnostic purposes. She can use the scopes to view your organs and assess various conditions more directly than with ultrasound imaging.
