Minimally Invasive Surgery Q & A

What is minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery uses specialized techniques and instruments to complete surgery through small incisions. Smaller incisions minimize your risk for noticeable scarring and postsurgical bleeding and pain.

Aventura OB-GYN Specialists offer several types of minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries in-office, including hysteroscopic, laparoscopic, and robotic surgery. They can perform many surgeries vaginally or through small incisions in your abdomen.

Why would I need minimally invasive surgery?

You may be a candidate for the minimally invasive surgery services available at Aventura OB-GYN Specialists if you have gynecological conditions that aren’t treatable with medications and other nonsurgical therapies.

Surgery may be a part of your treatment plan for:

  • Fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Endometriosis
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Fallopian tube blockages

The providers can use minimally invasive surgery techniques to remove precancerous cells from your cervix to reduce your risk for cervical cancer. Minimally invasive hysterectomies are also available to remove your uterus and other reproductive organs as part of your treatment for cancer, endometriosis, and other gynecologic conditions. 

For women interested in a permanent method of birth control, the team can use minimally invasive surgical techniques to complete a tubal ligation. 

How long is the recovery process after minimally invasive surgery?

While everyone recovers at their own pace after minimally invasive surgery, you can expect to heal faster than you might after traditional surgery.

The minimally invasive surgery techniques the Aventura OB-GYN Specialists use cause less trauma to your body, and the providers can minimize damage to healthy tissue nearby. Less trauma means you’ll have less pain during recovery, so you can get back to your routine sooner.

Small incisions also heal faster than deeper, longer incisions. Your risk for postsurgical infections and bleeding is also lower than with traditional surgery.

To help you prepare for minimally invasive surgery, the team discusses what to expect during recovery and how many days to take off work and other activities. After surgery, the specialists provide comprehensive aftercare services to ensure you heal fully and confirm your surgery was successful.
