Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery

We understand that it can be concerning to you when your physician tells you need surgery. You will undoubtedly have many questions and you can rest assured that your Lifeline Medical Associates healthcare provider is here for you throughout the entire process.

Surgeries related to women’s healthcare can be minimally invasive, meaning you will potentially have fewer complications and less pain in your recovery. Techniques used for minimally invasive surgery use smaller incisions so there is less risk as well.

Types of minimally invasive surgery can include:

  • Laparoscopy – Also known as endoscopy, this type of surgery uses small tubes and tiny cameras to guide the surgeon. Typically, the tube contains very small surgical instruments, which the surgeon is able to use while viewing the procedure on a monitor.
  • Robotic surgery – n this type of surgery, the physician has even greater control, enabling them to perform extremely precise procedures. The surgeon will operate from a console that is equipped with robotic arms. Viewing a high definition 3-D image on the console, the surgeon operates with flexibility and control.
