Robotic and Minimally Invasive Surgery Q&A
What is minimally invasive surgery?
Minimally invasive surgery focuses on performing the procedure you need with as little trauma to your body as possible.
While traditional surgery relies on large incisions to access the incision site, minimally invasive surgery uses tools like a laparoscope — a long, thin instrument with a camera at the end — to see the surgery site through small incisions.
This way, your Women’s Health Care Center of Houston provider can perform your procedure without the need to create large incisions. This lessens your risk for complications during and after surgery, minimizes your discomfort and scarring, and helps you heal faster.
What is robotic surgery?
The team at Women’s Health Care Center of Houston uses the da Vinci robotic surgical system. This system allows your provider to perform your procedure using tiny, highly precise instruments operated through a 3D console.
Like minimally invasive surgery, this prevents the need for large-scale incisions to open up the surgery site because the small robotic tools can perform the work through small incisions.
What’s more, the robotic instruments deliver extreme precision to ensure the best possible outcome from your procedure.
What robotic and minimally invasive surgery types are available?
The surgeons at Women’s Health Care Center of Houston blend robotic and minimally invasive surgery to perform a wide range of gynecological procedures, helping you get the treatment you need with less risk, discomfort, and downtime.
Specifically, they offer minimally invasive or robotic:
- Ovarian cystectomies
- Diagnostic laparoscopies
- Tubal ligations
- Lysis of adhesions
If you need any of the above procedures, don’t hesitate to talk to your Women’s Health Care Center of Houston provider about your surgical options. They can help you determine the right choice for you.
If you need a hysterectomy, they can help you decide if a supracervical hysterectomy or a total hysterectomy is best, based on your unique needs.
Once you decide on your procedure, your provider lets you know what to expect during and after it. They prioritize your comfort and education so you can go into your procedure, feeling informed. They also work with you during the post-operative healing process to ensure the best outcome.
