Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Surgery Q & A

What does the term “minimally invasive surgery” mean?

Minimally invasive surgery is a surgical approach that strives to disrupt as little tissue as possible while also performing the necessary alterations. It’s an alternative to traditional open surgery, which involves large incisions and a lot of tissue movement.

Laparoscopic surgery

This approach uses a surgical tube (laparoscope) equipped with a light and camera. Small incisions allow the surgeon to insert the laparoscope and slim surgical instruments into your body. The device sends real-time imaging to an external screen, allowing the surgeon to “see” your tissues as they make alterations. 

Robotic surgery

This option uses a bedside cart equipped with surgical arms and tools. This device performs the necessary tissue alterations, while a human surgeon sits at a nearby console and controls the movements. 

The team at South Valley Women’s Health Care has extensive experience in minimally invasive surgical techniques. 

What are some benefits of minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery offers the chance to perform necessary tissue alterations without the risks and recovery time associated with traditional open surgery techniques. Minimally invasive surgery benefits include:

  • Reduced time under anesthesia
  • Shorter recovery periods
  • Faster return to work 
  • Reduced bleeding
  • Lower risk of infection and other complications
  • Small incision lines
  • Less internal and external scarring

These benefits are why many surgeons prefer minimally invasive surgery techniques whenever possible.
