Modern gynecological surgery is based on minimally invasive techniques, which cause the least post-operative discomfort and recovery time for the patient. Laparoscopy is a class of such techniques, performed with a device called a laparoscope, which allows surgeons to gain access to the abdomen using an extremely small incision, and which is equipped with a tiny but very powerful camera to allow the surgeon to get an even better view of the abdominal cavity than is possible with regular observation. These cameras, used at Surgery of Tomorrow, allow an incredible level of visual detail and in combination with our surgeons’ expertise, allows for procedures to be performed at the height of precision.
Another benefit of Laparoscopy is the tendency for laparoscopic procedures to end with little to no scarring. Owing to the very small entry incisions made possible by the laparoscope, patients are no longer burdened with unpleasant scars after most procedures. Often, the surgeon will make an incision in the belly button, allowing any scar tissue that may sometimes form to be hidden naturally, leaving no visible marks whatsoever.
Laparoscopic surgery also proves highly desirable in the aspect of time. We understand that your time is valuable, and no one wants to spend hours on an operating table and then days recovering. Laparoscopy allows surgeons to quickly provide high quality care, and most procedures take from half an hour to an hour. The small entry incisions of laparoscopy ensure that, rather than requiring stitching and prolonged recovery times in hospital beds, patients at Surgery of Tomorrow can go home on the day of their procedure, and are free to return to their normal activities almost immediately. For some procedures, patients are ready to resume their regular schedule within the course of hours after their procedure is concluded. Our surgeons make sure that when they complete your care, you are ready to go out and live your life!
