What are different types of minimally invasive surgeries?

Several types of minimally invasive gynecological surgeries are available, such as:

Hysteroscopy

Dr. Reddy uses hysteroscopy procedures to evaluate and treat problems of the uterus. A hysteroscope is a thin lighted telescope like device. It is inserted through the vagina into the uterus. The hysteroscope transmits the image of the inside of the uterus onto a screen and helps to diagnose or treat uterine problems.

 

Laparoscopic surgery

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 is inserted inside the abdomen using extremely small incisions and allows her to view the abdominal and pelvic organs.

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:

  • Endometriosis
  • Heavy uterine bleeding
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Benign cervical disorders
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Ectopic pregnancy
