Today, minimally-invasive surgery techniques can be used to treat an array of conditions and symptoms, helping women avoid the risks associated with traditional surgery. Bay Area Obstetrics & Gynecology is a leading provider of state-of-the-art minimally-invasive procedures for women in Daly City, CA, and throughout the San Francisco Bay area.
Minimally invasive surgeries use special techniques and instruments designed to be used through very small incisions, and they're generally associated with fewer risks than traditional approaches that use large incisions. Some of the benefits of minimally-invasive surgeries include faster healing time, less discomfort during recovery and less risk of infection. Minimally invasive surgeries can usually be performed using sedation so the risks associated with general anesthesia can also be avoided.
Hysteroscopy is a procedure that uses a special tool called a hysteroscope to look inside your uterus. It can be performed right in the office, and it can be used to diagnose problems as well as perform some types of procedures.
Yes, some women can have a hysterectomy using a minimally-invasive technique. Some approaches use incisions made inside the vagina canal without the need for an incision through the skin. In cases where cancer is present, or the uterus is very large, a more traditional approach may be preferable.
A tubal ligation is a procedure that's used to close off the fallopian tubes to prevent pregnancy. Tubes may be tied off or sealed shut with clips, and although some types of tubal ligation procedures can be successfully reversed, it should be considered a permanent type of contraception.
Endometrial ablation is a procedure designed to remove the inner lining of the uterus using heat energy. The procedure is most commonly performed in women who have extremely heavy periods – a condition called menorrhagia which tends to occur more frequently in the years leading up to menopause. Hysterectomy used to be the only option for treating menorrhagia, but endometrial ablation is a much simpler procedure that enables the woman to keep her uterus.
