Who might need minimally invasive surgery?

Common reasons for minimally invasive surgery in women include:

  • Cervical cancer
  • Other gynecological cancers
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Pelvic pain
  • Infertility
  • Pain with intercourse
  • The desire for permanent birth control

To determine if you’re a candidate for minimally invasive surgery, your Burlington OBGYN Associates Inc. specialist discusses your medical history, lifestyle, symptoms, and treatment preferences. 

They complete a physical exam, pelvic exam, a Pap smear (if needed), and diagnostic procedures. Your provider might recommend blood testing, urine tests, a hysteroscopy, an ultrasound, or other imaging procedures.

What should I expect during minimally invasive surgery?

Follow all instructions before your surgery. You may need to avoid food and drink, stop taking certain medications, and arrange for someone to drive you home afterward.

Your specialist offers local anesthesia with a sedative to help you relax or general anesthesia to make you fall asleep. They use specialized tools to make tiny incisions or gain access to specific organs through your vagina. After surgery, your specialist closes any incisions and takes you to rest in a recovery area.

What happens after minimally invasive surgery?

It’s important to follow your surgeon’s instructions after undergoing minimally invasive surgery. You might experience tenderness, temporary vaginal bleeding, or other side effects. Take medications as directed, get plenty of rest, and follow up with your Burlington OBGYN Associates Inc. specialist to ensure effective results.
