5 Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery for Gynecologic Care

If you’re dealing with bleeding between periods, pelvic pain, painful sex, frequent urination, and lower back pain, you may have a reproductive health concern. Often we can treat these with medications and other procedures, but if the symptoms are bad enough to require surgery, there are minimally invasive ways to help.

If you live in the Las Vegas, Nevada area and you’re dealing with gynecological issues that require surgery, Dr. Staci McHale’s award-winning team at New Beginnings OB-GYN can help. Let’s examine the reasons you may need gynecological surgery, the types of minimally invasive methods available, and how our team can help.

Types of minimally invasive surgery

Gynecological symptoms such as those mentioned above can be due to an array of different conditions, such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, ovarian cancer, polycystic ovary syndrome, and pelvic inflammatory disease.

While many of these conditions require surgical treatment, there are often minimally invasive options involving laparoscopic, hysteroscopic, robotic, and vaginal procedures. Some of the minimally invasive surgeries we offer include: 

Benefits of minimally invasive surgery

Minimally invasive surgical procedures are delicate, precise, and make the fewest incisions possible to achieve results. This is why they have many advantages over traditional surgery:

1. Reduced trauma to tissue

These methods reduce the number of incisions made and focus on removing what needs to go, which means overall less tissue affected and fewer side effects.

2. Less bleeding

Targeting very specific areas to work in and with minimal incisions means less bleeding, and less chance of complications from excess bleeding.

3. Less pain

Smaller incisions and healing sites mean less pain to worry about, which makes it easier to go back to your normal routine after the procedure.

4. Faster healing time

Because of all of the aforementioned advantages, there is less tissue affected, so less recovery time is needed after the surgery. 

5. Avoid infections

Faster healing and less exposure of tissue to viruses and bacteria reduces your chances of getting an infection.

Technology has made treating many gynecological conditions a lot easier, and if caught early, treatment is possible with minimal chances of complications. If you’re ready to see what these surgeries can do to help, make an appointment with Dr. McHale and New Beginnings OB-GYN today.
