Minimally Invasive Surgery Q & A
What is minimally invasive surgery?
There are several minor surgeries that used to require a time-intensive and expensive visit to the hospital.
At Nile Women’s Health Care, fibroids, ablations, biopsies and other procedures requiring minimally invasive surgery can be performed onsite by the Nile Women’s Health Care specialists in their dedicated on-site surgery suite.
This means you get the treatment you need without the inconvenience and cost of visiting a hospital.
What are the advantages of minimally invasive surgery?
Minimally invasive surgery offers more than just convenience. Other advantages include:
- Small incisions (no incisions in some cases)
- Minimal bleeding
- Reduced pain
- Faster recovery
- Local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia
With most minimally invasive surgery, you can get back to your routine much faster than you would with traditional open surgery in the hospital.
What kind of minimally invasive surgeries are available on-site?
Nile Women’s Health Care offers several different minimally invasive procedures in the surgery center, including:
Loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) is a diagnostic and treatment procedure for cervical cancer. Your doctor uses a slender wire loop to extract abnormal cells from the opening of your uterus, the cervix. They may perform a LEEP surgery if you have an abnormal Pap test, biopsy, or colposcopy.
Your doctor uses a thin scope with a tiny camera to examine your cervix, vagina, and vulva for disease indicators in a colposcopy. You may need a colposcopy if you have an abnormal Pap test or if your doctor detects abnormalities during your pelvic exam.
In an endometrial biopsy, your doctor removes a tiny section of your uterine lining, the endometrium. They examine this sample for signs of cancer or other abnormalities.
Endometrial ablation cleans out the uterine lining and is often a treatment for heavy periods.
In fibroid treatment, your doctor removes fibroids in your uterus. There are many minimally invasive fibroid removal options, including hysteroscopy, laparoscopy, and robotic myomectomy with the da Vinci® system. Removing uterine fibroids can ease pelvic pain, stop heavy bleeding, and improve fertility.
Permanent birth control
Tubal ligation is a procedure where your doctor ties or otherwise closes your fallopian tubes. This prevents sperm from reaching eggs for fertilization.
The method used for your minimally invasive surgery depends on the specific situation. Nile Women's Health Care uses state-of-the-art equipment for all procedures.
