Laparoscopic and Laser Surgery

While non-surgical treatment methods for gynecological conditions are always preferred, in some cases surgery may be necessary.  All of the physicians at Green Valley OB/GYN are experienced in using the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques including laparoscopic and laser surgery.

These surgical methods are proven effective to diagnose and treat a number of gynecological problems that formerly required major surgery.

A laparoscopy is typically performed through a small incision into the belly button with the patient under general anesthesia, and is almost always an outpatient procedure. A gynecologist may perform laparoscopic surgery for the following:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Infertility
  • Endometriosis
  • Tubal ligation (tying tubes)
  • Tubal (ectopic) pregnancies
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Lysis of adhesions (removing scar tissue)
  • Laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy
  • Removal of ovarian cysts or the entire ovary
  • Diagnosis and treatment of some uterine anomalies
  • Destroying or removing some uterine fibroid tumors

Laparoscopic surgery is minimally invasive, less painful, have fewer complications and a shorter recovery time to help you return to normal activities more quickly.

Minimally invasive surgeries are common, safe and effective. However, like any medical procedure, there is a small risk of complications. To learn more, schedule an appointment to talk with your doctor.
