About Minimally Invasive Surgery
This technique involves minimal cuts and innovative devices installed with cameras to enable the surgeon to view inside the body without making a large incision. Minimally invasive surgeries cause reduced tissue damage, less bleeding, and more comfortable and faster recovery. This has resulted in its application in many branches of medicine, and majorly in gynecology. However, not every condition can be treated through minimally invasive techniques. Your specialist will decide whether it is the best approach after an extensive medical assessment.
What Are the Available Types of Minimally Invasive Surgery?
This is a common minimally invasive technique that utilizes an exceptional device known as a laparoscope. The device has been specifically designed for use via minor openings and is armed with cameras that magnify the images inside the incision to a monitor. Extra minor cuts allow the use of the devices. This provides the surgeon an expanded, 3-D view of the section, helping the doctor work with flexibility, control, and precision.
· Robot-Assisted Surgery
This type of technology exploits computer technology to execute surgery that requires improved precision. The device does not implement the operation and, in its place, uses the da Vinci robot to execute particular stages for higher accuracy and enhanced outcomes. During the surgery, the surgeons are translated and done by the robot. The da Vinci robot is exceptionally mobile with greater agility than humans, making it the ideal choice.
What Issues Can Be Addressed with Minimally Invasive Surgery?
Minimally invasive surgery, including both robot-assisted and laparoscopic surgery techniques, can be used in treating a range of gynecological problems. These include endometriosis, uterine fibroids, tumors, ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancy, gynecologic cancer, pelvic pain, and heavy menstrual bleeding. They can also be used for procedures such as oophorectomy, removal of ovaries and hysterectomy, removal of a part or the entire uterus. However, while most women can benefit from minimally invasive surgery treatment, they are not always the best option. Hence, the doctor will perform a comprehensive examination to ensure it is the best treatment approach in achieving optimal results.
What Are the Treatments Available?
Dr. Ulas provides several minimally invasive procedures to manage a considerable array of conditions, including vaginal reconstruction and hysteroscopy to view inside the uterus, laparoscopy and cystoscopy to view inside the bladder, and robot-assisted laparoscopy.
