Many patients will avoid undergoing invasive and expensive surgeries whenever possible. Unfortunately, when there are certain situations that arise, sometimes surgery is the only treatment option available. In situations like this, many women will try more conservative options such as laparoscopic surgery instead of more invasive, traditional methodologies. Dr. Craig Ranch of McKinney, Texas is excited to provide patients solutions such as laparoscopic surgery whenever possible!
What is laparoscopic surgery?
The best way to describe laparoscopic surgery is as a minimally-invasive technique used to complete procedures that used to only be addressed with conventional surgeries. The use of a laparoscope inserted through small incisions allows Dr. Craig Ranch to complete common procedures in a less invasive manner than before. The doctor will use a camera and video screen to complete the surgery without large scarring and extended healing and recovery periods once required.
What conditions are addressed with laparoscopic surgery?
There are many times when Dr. Craig Ranch will rely on laparoscopic surgery versus traditional surgery for the treatment of various conditions. Below are just a few of the conditions that may benefit from this method of procedure:
- Uterine fibroids
- Pelvic floor disorders
- Urinary incontinence
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Ovarian cysts
- Gynecological cancers
During an evaluation, Dr. Craig Ranch will provide a proper diagnosis for a patient and then discuss if surgical treatments are necessary. Whenever possible, laparoscopic surgery is used as an alternative to conventional surgery because of the many benefits it provides. Women can relax knowing they will be left with minimal scarring and will recover faster and easier from their procedure thanks to this technique.
