Advanced Laparoscopic & Hysteroscopic Surgery
With precision and skill, our surgeons perform advanced laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery in both Rock Hill and Fort Mill, SC, to treat a number of gynecologic conditions. These techniques are different forms of minimally invasive surgery that offer worthwhile benefits to that of open surgery when they can be utilized. These benefits include a shorter hospital stay, less overall recovery time, reduced risk of infection, decreased pain, and less scarring. Advanced laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery are different from standard versions of these procedures because they allow surgeons to perform with extremely high precision, vision, and an increased level of control. Not everyone is eligible for minimally invasive surgery, but we are certain to discuss all of your options with you to determine the best form of treatment.
Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery
Laparoscopic surgery is performed to diagnose and treat issues that occur in a woman’s reproductive organs, specifically outside of the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and internal pelvic area. This procedure makes use of a laparoscope – a thin, fiber optic tube with a miniature camera on the end. It may be inserted vaginally or through a very small incision made in the abdomen. The laparoscope allows for images to be sent to a TV monitor which gives an up-close view of all of these organs to the surgeon. This procedure may be exploratory or used to remove appropriate reproductive organs
Advanced Hysteroscopic Surgery
This form of minimally invasive surgery is used to examine the internal uterine cavity using a tiny telescope called a hysteroscope. It is inserted through the cervix into the uterus and, similar to a laparoscope, allows your surgeon to view the inside of the uterine cavity on a video monitor so it can be inspected for any abnormalities. By closely examining the shape of the uterus as well as the lining of the uterus your surgeon can see if fibroids or polyps are present. The openings of the fallopian tubes (tubal ostia) can also be assessed using a hysteroscope.
Eligibility for Advanced Laparoscopic or Hysteroscopic Surgery
Not everyone is eligible for advanced laparoscopic surgery or hysteroscopic surgery. Approaches and treatments depend upon several factors such as:
- The condition being treated
- Prior abdominal surgery
- Presence of scar tissue
- Other medical considerations
