Laparoscopy in Andrews, TX

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure we perform using a laparoscope, a special instrument with a thin lighted tube and a small camera that allows us to operate with greater precision. We use laparoscopy to diagnose and treat conditions such as pelvic pain, uterine fibroids, scar tissue and endometriosis. We also use laparoscopy to remove ovaries and fallopian tubes during total laparoscopic hysterectomy. Despite the fact that laparoscopy is minimally invasive, it can take up to three hours and is still considered major surgery, with major risks and potential for complications. Laparoscopy usually requires an hour or two worth of immediate postsurgical recovery time and about a week off from work.

Is Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Right For Me?

There’s a good chance that laparoscopic hysterectomy is right for you. The best way to know for sure is to consult your doctor or surgeon and discuss all your options and concerns. Only your surgeon will know whether laparoscopic hysterectomy, robotic hysterectomy, abdominal hysterectomy or some other procedure is best.
