If you need surgery, Dr. Ziworitin recommends minimally invasive surgery whenever possible. At Genesys Women OBGYN, they perform minimally invasive surgery with laparoscopic or robot assistance.
When performing laparoscopic surgery, your surgeon makes small incisions near the treatment area and inserts narrow tubes.
They insert tiny, precision surgical tools and a miniature camera called a laparoscope through the tubes. The laparoscope transmits images to an external computer monitor, so your surgeon can visualize the surgery while performing it.
Robot-assisted surgery goes to yet another level of precision. The mini camera transmits 3D, color, magnified images to the monitor.
Your surgeon conducts the operation from a control panel that allows them to maneuver the tiny, flexible surgical tools remotely for greater precision and accuracy. Robotic surgery is much more precise than traditional surgery, which minimizes trauma and reduces your recovery time.
Minimally invasive surgery creates less trauma than open surgery. Robot-assisted surgery has the further advantage of being able to perform minute, precise movements that human hands cannot accomplish on their own. Benefits of minimally invasive surgery include:
If, during your operative procedure, your surgeon determines that minimally invasive surgery can’t correct your problem or identifies other problems, your surgeon may switch to open surgery.
