Minimally invasive surgery offers the best possible results with a shorter period of recovery and a lower risk for complications. For minimally invasive gynecological procedures, trust Dr. Smith and her staff. Her team is highly skilled and trained to offer high-quality treatment using state-of-the-art technology.
Conventional surgeries can result in longer recovery times and larger incisions. However, Dr. Smith offers multiple forms of minimally invasive surgical options such as laparoscopy surgery as effective forms of treatment for various conditions.
During your consultation, Dr. Smith will conduct a thorough physical examination and review of your medical history to determine which treatment option is best for your condition.
Laparoscopy uses a slim surgical tool known as a laparoscope that has a small light and telescope attached to the end of it. During the procedure, a small incision is made, and the laparoscope is inserted into the surgical site. The light and telescope on the end of the laparoscope enable Dr. Smith to use smaller surgical instruments to complete the surgery without leaving a large scar. Common conditions treated with laparoscopy include the following:
- Ovarian cyst removal
- Tubal ligation
It can also be used for diagnostic purposes to confirm gynecological conditions.
