Why Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally Invasive Surgery and Women’s Health
Millions of women today are being diagnosed with health issues requiring surgery. In the past, surgical routes that would help treat severe endometriosis, fibroids, cysts, and other diseases would require surgeons to open up the body with larger incisions. These incisions, the standard of the past, allowed for doctors to utilize their instruments, hands, and see more of the interior of the body to address the issues. Advancements in technology is changing the way surgeries for women are performed, and one solution that is getting a lot of attention is that of minimally invasive surgery (MIS), especially to help women in need of surgery.
What is MIS?
MIS, as it is often referred to, stands for minimally invasive surgery. It is a solution that allows doctors to make very precise incisions, and accurately find and alleviate problem areas within the body. They are guided through robotics, 3D imaging, and cameras, and they can provide highly technical surgical solutions in a way that couldn’t be done in the past. With the help of technologies such as the da Vinci Surgical System, doctors are able to assist patients with a great deal of benefits during and after procedures are done.
What are The Benefits of MIS?
Due in large part to the minimally invasive process, several benefits become standard including:
Less Pain: post surgical pain is reduced, due in large part to smaller incisions made and more accurate steps.
Shortened Recovery: recovery times are reduced dramatically, and patients can get back to living their lives, going back to work, and feeling a sense of normalcy faster than with other options.
Reduced Scarring : scarring is reduced to a minimum, since the incisions are smaller, patients will see little to no scarring at the incision area.
Less Injuries: injuries to muscle tissue, and organs are reduced as well, due in large part to the accuracy of the cuts and the guidance that is provided by the da Vinci Surgical System.
Is MIS Right For You?
The best way to figure out whether or not this type of surgical solution is the right path for you, it’s imperative to consult a doctor. Only a physician can diagnose, treat, and help with a number of issues related to women’s health. This type of surgical solution can work for diagnostics as well as relieving abdominal issues, multiple fibroids, cysts, and other issues with the reproductive system. Your surgeon will be able to explain further about how MIS could help.
