Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Q & A

What does minimally invasive gynecologic surgery mean?

Minimally invasive surgical techniques rely on tiny, specialized surgical tools and cameras to perform surgeries through small incisions to avoid the extensive tissue damage of more traditional open surgery.

The key to minimally invasive gynecologic surgery is the tiny camera that Dr. Ahdoot threads through a small incision to get a clear view of the surgical area. This camera delivers images to a monitor, which allows Dr. Ahdoot to see the problem without relying on open surgery to gain access.

Also crucial to minimally invasive surgery are the specialized tools that Dr. Ahdoot uses to perform the procedure. These tools act as extensions of Dr. Ahdoot’s hands and perform the necessary work in small spaces. Watching the real-time images on his video monitor, Dr. Ahdoot guides the equipment and performs the necessary work.

What issues are handled with minimally invasive gynecologic surgery?

This technology was first introduced in the 1980s, and its scope has broadened considerably since then, especially in the field of gynecology. As a result, Dr. Ahdoot can take advantage of minimally invasive techniques to perform the following:

In-office procedures

  • Colposcopy
  • Dilation and curettage (D&C)
  • Endometrial ablation
  • Hysteroscopy
  • Loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP)

Hospital procedures

  • Laparoscopy to remove cysts, fibroids, adhesions, and endometrial tissue
  • Hysterectomy
  • Pelvic floor repair
  • Stress urinary incontinence procedures
  • Pelvic prolapse mesh repair

What are the advantages of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery?

The main advantages of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery are:

  • Lower risk of infection
  • Less downtime
  • Faster recovery
  • Less tissue damage
  • Less scarring

Dr. Ahdoot can sometimes go in through your vagina to perform the procedure, making the necessary incisions internally, leaving you with no visible scarring at all. If, however, your issue does require traditional open surgery, such as in the case of a radical hysterectomy or large fibroids, Dr. Ahdoot performs these procedures, as well.
