Minimally Invasive Surgery Q&A

What gynecological issues require minimally invasive surgery?

A number of gynecological issues throughout your life may require procedures using surgical techniques. In the past, open surgery with large incisions, notable blood loss, and long recoveries were your only option. 

Progress in medicine has made it so minimally invasive surgery may be an option if you suffer from:

  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Infertility
  • Pelvic pain
  • Painful periods
  • Complications from menopause


Whether you need minimally invasive surgery depends on the severity of these conditions, how they impact your life, and your response to more conservative measures.  

Antheia Gynecology treats all concerns with superior care. If you have any pelvic symptoms causing you problems, contact the practice for a consultation today.

What are the available types of minimally invasive surgery?

A thorough physical exam, review of your symptoms, evaluation of your medical history, and determination of how your body has responded to more conservative treatments helps your OB/GYN determine if minimally invasive surgery is right for your condition.

Surgeries might include:


  • Hysterectomy - surgical removal of uterus or womb
  • Myomectomy - surgical removal of uterine fibroids
  • Salpingectomy - the surgical removal of fallopian tubes
  • Oophorectomy - the surgical removal of ovaries
  • Endometriosis treatment - the removal of endometrial tissue

If minimally invasive surgery is needed, rest assured that surgeries have improved drastically. Antheia Gynecology uses only the latest techniques and technology available in the industry, so you achieve the best outcome possible.

What are the benefits of minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery offers numerous advantages compared to conventional open surgery. Minimally invasive surgery results in:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less pain
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Less risk of infection
  • Quicker recovery

Many minimally invasive surgical procedures take place on an outpatient basis, meaning you go home the same day. If you do require a hospital stay, it’s generally one night, and you go home the next morning. 

Minimally invasive surgery is a minor inconvenience with huge healing results. You return to work and life much more quickly than with past open surgeries.

With the most advanced, cutting-edge technology, your OB/GYN targets and treats your gynecological issue with success, causing minimal damage to your body’s tissues.
