When surgical procedures need to be performed on the reproductive system, many women are concerned about invasive treatments that can leave behind scarring and leave room for error. Dr. Craig Ranch and his team in McKinney, TX understand how nervous women can be about undergoing certain procedures. His practice proudly offers laparoscopic surgery methods as opposed to more invasive options such as open surgery.

What is laparoscopic surgery?

Dr. Craig Ranch describe laparoscopic surgery as a method of providing surgery with precision using robotic-assisted devices. These advanced treatment techniques allow women to undergo common gynecological procedures without the need for large incisions associated with open surgery. Laparoscopic surgery is performed with small incisions in which the laparoscopic instruments are inserted, and a small scope with a camera provides imaging the doctor uses to perform the procedure. These small incisions and camera give the doctor the ability to complete the treatment without opening up the body. A specialized device is often used in conjunction with this treatment to ensure precision.
