"…When you’re ready to take the next step, Dr Hinson, through minimally invasive gynecologic surgery is here to offer personalized care and state-of-the-art alternatives to open surgery…"
Depending upon your particular situation Dr Hinson may recommend minimally invasive surgery (also referred to as "laparoscopic surgery"). This would mean that Dr Hinson will make one or more incisions, each about a half-inch long, to insert a small tube (or tubes). This allows Dr Hinson to slip in tiny video cameras and specially designed surgical instruments to perform the procedure.
The good news… when you have minimally invasive surgery, you're likely to lose less blood and have less postoperative pain, fewer and smaller scars, and a faster recovery. Depending on your condition, you may need only a short hospital stay, or none at all.
For some conditions, your Dr Hinson may recommend robotic surgery. This technology gives Dr Hinson great precision, flexibility, and control by providing a magnified, 3-D view of the surgical site.
The advantages of minimally invasive procedures
- Faster recovery times (when compared to open surgery)
- Minimal scarring
- Reduced blood loss and reduced infection rates
- Less post-operative pain
Dr Hinson offers the following types of minimally invasive surgery procedures
Hysteroscopic Surgery: Hysteroscopic surgery involves placing a small camera through the cervix to look at the inside of the uterus. Specialized instruments can be passed through the camera which allows the surgeon to operate inside the uterus without an incision.
Laparoscopic Surgery: Patients having laparoscopic surgery will have a small incision inside or near the belly button, and may have other small (less than 1cm) incisions beneath the belly button. These small incisions allow the passage of a camera and special instruments into the abdomen, allowing the surgeon to carry out the surgery.
Laparoscopy can be used to perform:
- Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus)
- Oophorectomy (removal of the ovaries)
- Myomectomy (removal of the fibroids)
- Treatment of endometriosis and pelvic pain
Robotic Surgery: Robotic surgery is a state-of-the-art surgical platform with 3D, high-definition vision and miniaturized, wristed surgical instruments designed to help doctors take surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. By helping doctors to overcome the challenges of traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery is changing the experience of surgery for women around the world.
