Minimally invasive surgery (also known as laparoscopic surgery) is becoming the preferred treatment option for most gynecologic surgeries. MIGS uses state-of-the-art technology to minimize the damage to human tissue, reducing postoperative pain and blood loss, leading to a quicker recovery, and lessened scarring.
The advantages of minimally invasive surgery are:
Less pain after the procedure
Less blood loss
Ability to go home the same day after surgery, in most cases
Earlier return to daily activities

What is daVinci Robotic Surgery?
Robotic surgery is a form of minimally invasive surgery where the surgeon uses a computer controlled robot to assist him/her with the procedure.
The major advantages of robotic surgery include:
How is daVinci Robotic surgery performed?
The surgeon works from a console in the operating room, controlling robotic instruments mounted on robotic arms working through tiny incisions in the patient. The surgeon looks through a 3-D camera attached to another robotic arm. The surgeon’s hand, wrist and finger movements are transmitted through the console to the instruments attached to the robot’s arms. The mimicked movements have the same range of motion as the surgeon allowing maximum control. An experienced surgical team supervises the robot at the patient’s bedside.
