What are different types of minimally invasive surgeries?
Several types of minimally invasive gynecological surgeries are available, such as:
Dr. Reddy uses hysteroscopy procedures to evaluate abnormalities in the uterus. It’s a technique that doesn’t require incisions and offers minimal downtime. During the procedure, she inserts a small lighted tube into your vagina and uterus to diagnose or treat gynecological conditions.
Robotic surgery involves using a robotic medical device that assists in minimally invasive gynecological surgeries. Dr. Reddy uses the device for better control, vision, and precision during surgical procedures. She operates the robotic device, equipped with surgical arms, from a console.
For certain gynecological procedures, Dr. Reddy may use laparoscopy, a non-robotic surgical technique. Laparoscopy involves using a thin, flexible tube attached to a video camera that reaches internal organs and allows her to see inside the body using extremely small incisions.
For what conditions are minimally invasive surgeries used?
Dr. Reddy completes numerous minimally invasive gynecological surgeries based on each patient’s individual needs. Examples of conditions she may treat using minimally invasive surgery include:
- Ovarian cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Heavy uterine bleeding
- Uterine prolapse
