Technology has evolved immensely over the years, allowing for less invasive treatment. Laparoscopic surgery is performed using much smaller incisions than traditional surgery allows. Reasons for having laparoscopic surgery would include:
Undergoing a minimally invasive surgery has been raved about by patients, as they’re typically able to miss less work and just return to normalcy sooner. Recovery is smoother than with traditional surgery and laparoscopic surgeries can often be performed as an outpatient procedure.
Some of the doctors on our team have been specially trained in robotics surgery, which can be done for procedures such as hysterectomies. Robotics surgery utilizes even smaller incisions, leading to even faster and more tolerable recovery times.
Another procedure our doctors are trained to perform are colposcopies and LEEPs, or Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedures. These are sometimes performed when a Pap test show abnormalities in the cells. If it has been determined that performing the LEEP is the best treatment, it is done in our office and only takes a few minutes.
