By | November 22, 2019

What Is Minimally Invasive Gynaecologic Surgery?

Minimally invasive gynaecologic surgery is a medical-surgical procedure which is related to the treatment of the female reproductive system, especially the surgery that cures infertility problem in females. The procedure involves the insertion of the telescopic device into the abdomen (laparoscopy) or through the cervix into the uterine cavity (hysteroscopy). The telescopic device comes with a digital camera called laparoscope so that the surgeon can get clear visual images of the operating area.

What Are The Benefits Of Laparoscopic Gynaecology Surgery?

One of the sizeable advantages of gynaecological laparoscopy surgery is that a patient gets a cure from infertility, which ultimately increase the chances of conception and so many other gynaecological issues.

Following are the list of few benefits that a minimally-invasive laparoscopic gynaecology surgery can provide:

  • The procedure is minimally invasive, that causes smaller scars.
  • The success rate of laparoscopic infertility surgery is high.
  • A patient may get same-day discharge from the hospital.
  • The recovery process is less painful and rapid.
  • A patient can switch back to the normal routine soon
  • Less chance of getting the internal scar

What Are The Most Common Gynaecologic Surgeries Performed Under Laparoscopy?

  • Tubal Reanastomosis : This medical procedure is performed to reverse fallopian tubal ligation or to remove blocked/damaged part of the fallopian tubes in the pelvic area.
  • Salpingectomy : This medical procedure is performed to remove a part of the fallopian tube that has formed hydrosalpinx (build-up of fluid). This procedure is often carried out to improve the possibility of IVF (in-vitro fertilization) that was blocked by hydrosalpinx.
  • Salpingostomy: This is a medical procedure which is performed when there is a growth of hydrosalpinx in part of fallopian tube proximal to the ovary.
  • Fimbrioplasty: This is a medical procedure which is repetitively performed to repair and rebuild the fimbriae of the fallopian tube. This is an optional procedure when there is a blockage of the fallopian tube near the ovary due to any scar tissue, which obstruct the selection of egg released from the ovary.
  • Salpingoophorolysis: This a medical-surgical procedure which is performed to free fallopian tube from adhesions that are occulting the tube.
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) surgery: This is a medical procedure which is performed by a heated needle to destroy additional follicular sacs (egg sacs) formed inside the ovary. These extra sacs generate hormones that cause infertility.

 Risks Involved In Laparoscopic Gynecology Treatment?

Although laparoscopic gynecology treatment is highly beneficial in curing infertility, still there remains some minor risk factor which is associated with the surgery like:

  • A patient may get Infection in the pelvic area
  • Adhesion formation on reproductive organs that stick them to other organs or abdominal wall and increases the risk of tubal pregnancy.
  • A patient may complain about allergic reactions after surgery.
  • A patient may face problems while urinating.

 Recovery Time After Surgery

After surgery, recovery is the most essential process in any medical procedure. The recovery ensures that a patient can heal sooner. In the laparoscopic gynecology treatment process, a patient is discharged on the same day of the treatment. But the entire recovery requires 1-2 weeks after the surgery.

During the recovery process the patients are recommended to take certain precautions like:

  • A patient should stay away from strenuous physical activities.
  • Lifting heavy weight should be avoided for a few weeks
  • The patient should avoid climbing stairs
  • The patient should avoid intercourse and using a tampon until complete recovery takes place.
  • The patient should wait to attempt for conception, for at least three months after surgery.

Once surgical soreness gets recovered, a patient can switch back to its day to day routine and perform household activities at a normal pace.
