Benefits of Minimally Invasive Procedures
In contrast, to open surgery alternatives, your doctor doesn't need to make as large of an opening to operate. Instead, using a sophisticated tool known as a laparoscope, through a small opening they can perform the same task. This usually results in less pain after the procedure, often in less downtime as well, and the scarring will be comparably minimal. Because of the precision involved with these robotics-assisted surgeries, they can often be much more consistently accurate. The types of available treatments can include hysterectomy, the removal of ovarian cysts, and fibroids, among others. You can reach out to your local office for more information.
Laparoscopy Procedure in Bowie, Greenbelt, and North Bethesda, MD
Although the procedure is minimally invasive, it will typically still require you to be under general anesthesia throughout. But you will often be able to go home on the same day of the treatment.
After some preparations, your surgeon will begin by making a very small incision through which they will insert the laparoscope. This device is equipped with a camera so your doctor has a very clear view of what's happening as they work. From here the actual details of the operation will vary depending on the type of surgery you're undergoing.
