Minimally-invasive surgery, sometimes referred to as laparoscopic surgery, is used to treat many gynecological conditions, such as uterine fibroids and polyps, and endometriosis, once only treatable with open or major surgical procedures. Advances in computer technology and laparoscopic instruments have meant easier recovery with less pain and fewer and smaller scars for many women.
In minimally-invasive procedures for procedures like tubal ligation, hysteroscopy, endometrial ablation and dilation and curettage, only a few, small incisions are needed, each about a half-inch long, to insert a tubes through which a tiny camera and specialized instruments and s are passed to perform the surgery.
