Laparoscopic Surgery, Minimally Invasive Surgery
The integration of the endoscopic surgery is a new breakthrough in medicine. The progress of the laparoscopic technique currently allows the surgical solution to most gynecological problems, which used to be resolved in a much more traumatic manner, through the laparotomy or open-surgery.
All this involves several additional advantages such as:
- Easier recovery, quicker return to normal activity and faster reintegration into the working life and the rest of daily activities.
- Less postoperative pain and less need for medicines and painkillers.
- The hospital stay may be avoided in many types of surgery, lowering costs and improving the comfort of staying at home, given the possibility of outpatient procedures.
- Large scarring in the abdomen is avoided, thus leading to a lower chance of keloids, lower rate of wound infections and excellent, extremely different and best possible, aesthetic and cosmetic results, since only two or three incisions of half a centimeter each are made.
- Lower risk of hernias, abscesses, bruises, eviscerations, eventrations, less need for blood or blood derivatives transfusions, lower events of granuloma or suture rejection.
- Less formation of adhesions, which can more easily be formed with the open surgery.
- Greater ability to make incisions and difficult procedures on bloody or with a lot of adhesions tissues or other complex areas, since it allows to have a better and excessive visualization of the surgical field through magnifying lens of ultimate technology.
Surgeries that can be done by laparoscopy:
- Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus or womb).
- Myomectomy (removal of fibroids).
- Release of adhesions.
- Tubal recanalization.
- Treatment of endometriosis at all levels of complexity from stage-I-minimal to stage-IV severe endometriosis including the difficult and sensitive treatment of the endometriosis that involves the recto-vaginal septum, dramatically improving the pain caused by sexual intercourse, defecation, menstruation and chronic pelvic pain.
- Screening and treatment of ovarian cysts of any size while preserving a larger portion of the healthy ovarian tissue.
- Repair of the pelvic floor to improve:
Vaginal vault prolapse (via colposacropexy).
Cystocele and rectosele (the vagina and rectum move down below their normal position).
- Tubal Ligation.
- Diagnosis and management of the acute and chronic pelvic pain.
- Hysteropexy (suspension of the retroverted or prolapsed uterus).
- Removal of the lost intrauterine device.
- Drainage of the ovary- tube abscess.
- Treatment of ectopic pregnancy.
- Treatment of the polycystic ovary syndrome.
- Treatment of the pelvic varicocele (pelvic varicose veins).
- Ovariopexy (fixing an ovary to the abdominal wall to prevent new twists).
- Presacral neurectomy for chronic intractable pelvic pain.
Rapid recovery, shortest time to return to normal activities and better cosmetic results.
Transvaginal Diagnostic and Operative Hysteroscopy.
Techniques for the diagnosis of congenital or acquired malformations, biopsies of endometrial tissue and polyps, identification and management of lumps and some types of fibroids and several intrauterine injuries, among others, are applied using this method.
