Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Our surgeons are highly experienced and have advanced training and board certifications in performing minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries using few or smaller incisions for a better cosmetic outcome.

Less invasive techniques are used during minimally invasive gynaecology surgeries like hysteroscopy or laparoscopy to treat the gynaecological conditions surgically. Fewer or no incisions are required in minimally invasive procedures instead of one large incision. Some of these procedures are even performed in the outpatient department, while others may require a few nights of hospital stay.

Gynaecologists and surgeons at The Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Navi Mumbai are national leaders in performing minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries. Having specialised training and extensive expertise in the field, our surgeons use advanced technology for minimally invasive gynecologic procedures while dealing with certain patients. Our team has expertise in treating complex conditions like advanced endometriosis and large fibroids.

Minimally invasive techniques have many advantages over conventional gynaecological surgeries, such as:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less pain and bleeding
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster healing and return to everyday activities
  • Less prominent scar tissue
  • Decreased risk of infection and other complications

We use minimally invasive gynecologic techniques wherever possible to avoid open surgeries. Our gynaecological surgeons are experts in this field and have years of experience in their names. The gynaecological conditions we treat include:

  • Endometriosis
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Painful and heavy menstruation
  • Gynaecological cancers like endometrial, cervical, and ovarian cancer
  • Cysts in the ovaries
  • Pelvic organ prolapse and adhesions
  • Pelvic pain and postmenopausal bleeding
  • Uterine fibroids and polyps

Our surgeons collaborate with each patient and their families to carefully assess individual symptoms, overall health, and other factors to determine whether he is a suitable candidate for minimally invasive surgery. The procedure that is best suited to the needs of a patient depends on his condition, overall health, and several other factors.

Our surgeons can perform minimally invasive surgeries, including:

  • Laparoscopy
    Three to four small incisions are made in the pelvic area to make way for inserting a laparoscope. A lighted camera and surgical instruments are introduced along with the laparoscope.
  • Vaginal technique
    A small incision is made by the surgeon in the vaginal area to get access to the surgical site.
  • Laparoscopic-assisted vaginal technique
    The surgical site is reached by the surgeon using both the vaginal and laparoscopic approaches.
  • Single port surgery
    This involves performing laparoscopy through a single incision into the umbilicus.
  • Hysteroscopy
    A hysteroscope, lighted camera, and a few other instruments are introduced by the surgeon into the uterus through the cervix without making any incisions.

With the minimally invasive gynaecology surgical techniques above, our surgeons simplify a wide range of gynaecological procedures, including:

  • Cancer staging
    It involves evaluating the cancerous tissue to find out whether the cancer is in its earlier stages or advanced stage. This helps plan the treatment options accordingly.
  • Endometrial ablation
    This procedure involves the destruction of the endometrium to decrease menstrual flow.
  • Hysterectomy
    It refers to the removal of the uterus and in rare cases the ovaries and the fallopian tubes are also removed along with the uterus.
  • Myomectomy
    It involves removal of the uterine fibroids followed by reconstruction of the uterine tissue.
  • Ovarian cystectomy
    Refers to the removal of ovarian cysts.
  • Resection and treatment of endometriosis
    Here, the endometriotic implants and scar tissue are removed, followed by restoring the functional anatomy of organs.
  • Pelvic organ prolapse repair
    Refers to the reattachment and suspension procedures to reposition the pelvic organs that are prolapsed back in their proper positions in case of bladder or rectal hernias
  • Cancer surgery
    Here, the cancerous tumours from the uterus, cervix, ovaries, and other female reproductive organs are removed.
  • Tubal ligation
    The fallopian tubes are sterilised by cutting or blocking them
  • Tubal reanastomosis
    It involves a reversal of a tubal ligation by reconnecting the fallopian tubes.
