Minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopic and robotic surgery)
Usually, gynecologic surgery (hysterectomy, myomectomy, sacrocolpopexy…) is done through
a 10-to-15-centimetre incision in the abdomen, called laparotomy. This incision could be
horizontal (under the pubic hair line) or vertical (between the pubis and the navel).
During laparoscopic surgery, we make a small incision in or near your bellybutton. Then we insert a laparoscope — a narrow tube fitted with a camera — into your abdomen. We perform the surgery with instruments inserted through other small incisions in your abdominal wall.
During robotic surgery, instruments are inserted through similar small incisions, and we control movement of instruments from a separate console.
Minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopic and robotic surgery) use smaller incisions than a laparotomy does. This means you may have fewer and smaller scars, less pain, lose less blood and return to normal activities more quickly than with a laparotomy. Depending on your condition, you may need only a short hospital stay (1 or 2 days).
We can do through this surgical approach:
1- Minimally invasive hysterectomy:
A hysterectomy is an operation in which the uterus is removed. It is also called ablation of the uterus. Depending on the case, the cervix, ovaries and/or Fallopian tubes might also be removed. The most common reason hysterectomy is performed is for uterine fibroids, for abnormal uterine bleeding, for cervical dysplasia, for endometriosis, for cervical and endometrial cancer…
2- Minimally invasive myomectomy
Myomectomy surgically removes fibroid tumors while preserving the uterus in women of childbearing age or in women who want to avoid hysterectomy. Fibroid number and location are factors in determining when minimally invasive surgery is appropriate
3- Minimally invasive sacrocolpopexy
Sacrocolpopexy (sacral colpopexy) is a surgical technique for repairing pelvic organ prolapse. Pelvic organ prolapse refers to the bulging or herniation of one or more pelvic organs into or out of the vagina. The pelvic organs consist of the uterus, vagina, bowel and bladder. Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when the muscles, ligaments and fascia (a network of supporting tissue) that hold these organs in their correct positions become weakened, because of pregnancy and childbirth, aging, menopause, obesity… The most common complaints are a feeling of pelvic pressure, of a lump in the vagina or outside the vagina,of low back pain, of urinary stress incontinence… The purpose of sacrocolpopexy is to restore your pelvic organs to their natural position while retaining sexual function.
