Minimally Invasive Surgeries

Minimally invasive or 'key-hole' surgery can be performed using laparoscopy. This has the advantages of reduced postoperative pain, a shorter stay in hospital, a smaller incision and therefore a better cosmetic result than conventional surgery.

Our physicians are considered a subspecialists with expertise in minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques for the treatment of many gynecological cancers.

Certain laparoscopic procedures can now be performed with the state-of-the-art da Vinci Surgical System.  Our physicians have extensive experience with the da Vinci System and are pleased to discuss its use in specific cases.

Procedures such as radical hysterectomy and pelvic and para-aortic lymph node removal can now be performed with small incisions and with much less postoperative pain and shorter hospital stays. While laparoscopic surgery is not ideal for all patients, feel free to ask our office for more information regarding these state-of-the-art techniques.
