Minimally Invasive Surgery
Women are educating themselves about alternative surgical procedures that provide options to maintain organs such as the uterus, cervix or ovaries. Once educated about these procedures, women will often choose a minimally invasive approach to surgery or alternatives to hysterectomy.
Minimally invasive alternatives offer advantages over traditional laparotomy (large abdominal incision) such as fewer complications with infection or blood loss, less adhesion (internal scar tissue) generation, options to maintain fertility, decreased hospital stay, faster overall recovery, less pain and better cosmetic effect. Know your minimally invasive options before you have surgery. There may be a better choice for you.
