- Posted on: Jan 15 2020
At Craig Ranch OB/GYN, we offer gynecological and obstetric services to women in and around the community of McKinney, TX. Our professionals welcome women who are considering certain procedures to ask about solutions such as laparoscopic surgery. With laparoscopic surgery, many treatments that often required invasive surgery are now less invasive and more effective than ever!
What is laparoscopic surgery?
Dr. Craig Ranch describes laparoscopic surgery as a minimally-invasive surgical technique that may replace the need for traditional surgeries used in the past. This procedure uses several smaller incisions to access the area in need of treatment. Through the incisions, special instruments are used, along with devices utilizing a small camera which is used by the doctor to perform the procedure. By observing the images from the inserted camera, a surgeon can complete a procedure without invasive cuts and scarring.
What conditions can laparoscopic surgery treat?
There are a wide range of conditions that can benefit from laparoscopic surgery. These include:
• Ectopic pregnancy
• Pelvic floor disorders
• Ovarian cysts
• Gynecological cancers
Why choose laparoscopic surgery?
In the past, women who needed certain procedures done in the pelvic region needed invasive surgery. Now, with laparoscopic surgery, many treatments can be performed in a less intrusive manner. The benefits of laparoscopic surgery include smaller incisions, less scarring, outpatient procedures, faster recovery, and reduced risk of infections. All of these make laparoscopic surgery the top choice for many women needing specific treatments.
What should I expect from recovery after laparoscopic surgery?
Our professionals will advise patients as to the recovery time needed following their procedure. In most cases, patients will not need to take extensive time from work, school, or other usual activities to heal, since the procedure is far less invasive than conventional treatment methods.
