The physicians at Craig Ranch OB/GYN, located in McKinney, Texas provide laparoscopic surgeries to address a variety of health concerns for women from the greater Dallas area.
Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive approach to surgery where the procedure is performed inside the body, with specially designed instruments which are inserted through just a few small incisions. One of the instruments, a camera mounted on the tip of a slender tube, provides the surgeon with a view of tissue being treated from inside the body via a live video stream to a monitor in the treatment room. The abdominal cavity is usually inflated with carbon dioxide throughout the surgery, so the surgeon has room to room to work and can see the area clearly. Laparoscopic surgery usually lasts between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on what condition is being treated. Laparoscopy is usually performed under general anesthesia and while most normal activities can be resumed in a day or two, it can take up to two or three weeks to get back to any strenuous activities. If you are working with the doctor to correct a reproductive health issue, your physician will inform you about the details of the laparoscopic procedure and the exact details of recovery and post-surgical results.
