OB/GYNs at Riverview Health can treat a wide array of reproductive health conditions with minimally invasive gynecological surgery. Minimally invasive techniques allow a surgeon to make very small incisions in the abdomen or vagina, instead of larger incisions associated with traditional surgery.
Your doctor may recommend gynecological surgery to treat your symptoms if noninvasive treatments or medications haven’t been successful.
Conditions that may be treated with gynecological surgery can affect women of all ages:
Depending on your condition, health, age and other factors, OB/GYNs at Riverview Health can perform open or minimally invasive gynecological surgery to treat a range of disorders and conditions.
If you have open surgery, an incision will be made to access your reproductive organs. The procedure may require an overnight hospital stay. With minimally invasive surgery, also called laparoscopy, several smaller incisions are made, typically resulting in less scarring, pain and recovery time. For either procedure, anesthesia will be administered. The type of anesthesia will depend on the procedure.
Fortunately, many gynecological surgeries can be performed with minimally invasive techniques. In some cases, your doctor may treat problems in the pelvis by going through the vagina. Talk with your provider about the risks and benefits of each option.
If you’re eligible for minimally invasive surgery, your recovery time will typically be only a few days. Open surgery may require a longer recovery time. Your provider will give you special instructions on how to care for your surgery site and when it’s safe to return to normal activities.
