Minimally invasive surgery refers to procedures performed through small incisions or natural body openings, such as the vagina.
Unlike traditional open surgery, which requires large incisions to access the internal organs, minimally invasive surgery involves making several small incisions, typically smaller than one inch, which typically allows for less tissue damage and a shorter recovery time.

The team at Roswell ObGyn, LLC performs many types of minimally invasive surgery, such as:
During a laparoscopic hysterectomy, the surgical team removes your uterus through small incisions in your abdomen.
A hysteroscopy involves inserting a hysteroscope (thin tube with a camera) into the uterus through the vagina and cervix. The team can examine your uterus and remove any abnormal tissue, growths, or lesions.
A myomectomy can remove uterine fibroids while preserving the uterus. The team can perform the procedure via laparoscopy (through the abdomen) or hysteroscopy (through the vagina and cervix).
This procedure carefully removes the uterine lining to treat heavy menstrual bleeding.
LEEP can remove abnormal cells from the cervix using a thin wire loop and an electrical current.
A bilateral salpingectomy allows the team to take out the fallopian tubes to permanently prevent pregnancy, reduce the risk of ovarian cancer, or treat an ectopic pregnancy.
Your recovery time depends on what type of minimally invasive surgery you have. Most women can begin walking and moving around within 24 hours of surgery and return home within the same day. You can expect to resume many of your normal activities within 2-4 weeks, depending on the complexity of the procedure.
