Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive SurgeryPeachtree Gynecology specializes in minimally invasive, gynecologic surgery.

Gynecologic surgery refers to surgery performed on the female reproductive organs. It is performed for cancer as well as a range of non-cancerous (benign) gynecologic conditions. When lifestyle changes, and medication or other less invasive treatments do not help your condition, surgery is often recommended. If your doctor suggests surgery, learning about all available treatment options can help you to make the best decision for your situation and ease any anxiety you may feel about surgery.

All surgeries carry risk, but traditional open surgery with a large incision has significant drawbacks such as pain, trauma, a long recovery and risk of infection. Fortunately, less invasive surgical options are often available. At Peachtree Gynecology, we offer a wide range of minimally invasive surgical options including:

Vaginal surgery: is actually the most minimally invasive surgical approach requiring no abdominal incisions; with a short hospital stay, less pain, and quicker recovery than other surgical options. It is also one of the most cost effective options. However, not all conditions can be adequately treated through a vaginal approach. There are numerous types vaginal procedures available including vaginal hysterectomy and multiple options for vaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse.

Laparoscopic surgery: the surgeon uses small incisions to insert long-shafted instruments to operate on the targeted organ or tissue. Laparoscopy is effective for many routine procedures, but has limits when the procedure, patient’s anatomy or condition is challenging or complex. Laparoscopic surgery has less pain and quicker recovery than traditional open surgery.

da Vinci Robotic Surgery: a safe, effective and minimally invasive procedure. Using the most advanced technology available today, the da Vinci Surgical System allows your doctor to perform delicate and complex operations through a few tiny incisions with increased vision, precision, dexterity and control.
